    Thanks Ron,
    I thought this one was a candidate for a reclassification but I could not find evidence of the change. What is the best way to keep up with the changes in genus classification? It is becoming a task just to keep my orchid list up-to-date!

    Looks like a happy and very healthy plant! Good flowers are they fragrant like Radiata?

    Thanks Jan,
    The orchid is very fragrant. Since I do not have a skilled nose, I asked my wife to help. She describes the fragrance as a light Gardenia with a hint of citrus. To me it just smells good.

    Thanks,
    The plant is tightly compact with a "clumpish" growth pattern. The mature pseudobulb and leaves are approximately 11 inches in total length and the blooms are carried on a short spike.

    You probably couldn't find any confirmation of Prosthechea lancifolia because that species is considered to be a synonym of Prosthechea cochleata. However, as I understand it, some plants that were in the trade identified as Encyclia lancifolia are actually Prosthechea trulla. At least one hybrid registration was changed from listing E. lancifolia to Psh. trulla. Since you call your plant a miniature it may be that species. Whatever it is, yours is a very well grown attractive one.

    Probably the best place to check on current classification is the World Checklist of Selected Plant Families, maintained by Kew. A search should find it.
