    Default NOID - miniature Vandaceous ? orchid

    Looks as though it could be in the same section as say neofinetia with that great long nectary and the enormous ( relatively speaking) tunnel like entrance to it, clearly seen in the lowest of the four pics.
    BTW the longest leaf is about 3cm. The average leaf length is one inch. the flower - natural spread maybe 2 cm, but the nectary is 3 inches long !

    I can't remember where it came from - I often buy things I don't know after browsing lists and then looking at IOSPE.

    I'm holding my breath waiting for one of you knowledgable fellow members to enlighten me...

    BTW the flower colour to my eyes is rather more yellow than the camera records.

    From the plant morphology and flowers it looks to me more like the African cousins the Aerangis, I cannot say which species, but looks a lot like Aerangis, the labellum which is also spade shaped reminds me of an Aerangis.

    Geoff, check out the Neobathieas; stumbled on these by accident. From Madagascar.

    Neobathiea grandidierana (Rchb.f.) Garay 1972 is about the nearest - the way the lip is cranked seems quite distinctive in this genus ( and my plant) as compared to say Aerangis ; my flower is rather smaller , but IOSPE quotes quita a remarkable range, and so a tiny seedling flowering for the first time may well be a bit sub-standard. Also it sems that two separate species have been lumped into this grex, I'll see if my friends at Kew can throw anu light on the two individual former components -( N.filicorn is the other) - but this is a good provisional diagnosis anyway. ( The chair of the RHS Orchid Committee is an expert on Madagascar orchids - I'll see if he will help)

    Thank you for this - your knowledge impresses me !

    I'd like to take credit for knowledge, but in this case I just stumbled upon it (in IOSPE-my library is void of Madagascan orchid lit.)
