    IOSPE has some Schoms as Myrmeco's but not all , btw.
    I recently made a hybrid of C.Hawaian Wedding "Virgin" with Myrmeco thomsoniana , but alas, the pod turned yellow and fell after some 6 weeks. I had not previously seen any example of the intergeneric cross - now I see what might have been ! What an amzing lip. Congrats Yew Sung !
    If one comes my way it will be an immediate buy .

    Default Help me figure this out

    Hi Yew,
    I heartily agree this is an awesome Orchid and your photography is just great.
    As soon as I saw the pic. I knew that I had one of these but mine was not called what yours is tagged.
    I have had this plant for about 8 years, and made several divisions so I now have 3 pots actively growing.
    I have entered the plant (in flower) in 2 AOS judged Shows and won 1st. and 3rd prizes for it under the Tag. Recchara. Francis Fox (Blc. Polka Dot x Shom. Tibicinis). I remember researching it and found that it was registered this way.
    I am attaching a pic. of mine (photography not as good as yours but I hope you can see it).
    What do you think is the difference, and why?

    Cheers
    Angela
