    Ok, will you stop posting pictures of lovely orchids with no names? Interesting flower - I like it. I have the worst time with terete growths though.

    That is truly something, Persist. Gorgeous bloom. Definitely post the genus if you can find it.

    That's probably Papilionanthe vandarum (or P. uniflora).

    Thanks prem. It is a Papilionanthe. this species used to be called Aerides nitada. Funny how they keep breaking apart these small genus but leave Dendrobiums in a large messy clump.
