    Eric, the flowers of your plant look quite big. Could you give me the size of them? I'm asking you because in China, there is also an Dendr. wilsonii, which according to Kew Garden, is just a synonym of Dendr. moniliforme. My friends in China say, it's not correct, because the flowers of Dendr. wilsonii are much bigger. Usually flowers of moniliforme are just 2-3 cm big.
    Few weeks ago San, a member of this forum, has posted picture of Dendr. wilsonii. Please compare, with your flowers.

    Thanks for the comments. I learn every day...
    Flowers are 4 x 4 cm. Could it be D. wilsonii ?

    for me your flowers are bigger then flowers of Dendr. moniliforme, but the name Dendr. wilsonii is, not a valid name. Do you have a book "The wild orchids in Yunnan"?. There is a pictur of Dendr. wilsonii.
