    Default Acampe ID please

    Hi all,
    next to a wonderful Acampe rigida, I got 2 other Acampe as well. I looked them up on the internet and have some doubts about the nametags on these. One of them is tagged Acampe pachyglossa, the other Acampe papillosa. I doubt most seriously about the papillosa, as it doesn't have stripes as the ones I see on the internet.
    Any specialist insight would be highly appreciated here.

    Kind regards,
    Wouter

    Hi Connie, thanks again for replying and bumping the post.
    I have now found out that they are not Acampe but Gastrochilus. And the nice lady was kind enough to lend me a picture guide to the orchids of South East Asia, so the determination work can start. She herself didn't know the names, as she got them from a friend and forgot what they were.
    Will post back when I determined what species they are.
    Kind regards,
    Wouter

    It's Gastrochilus obliquus.

    Hi,
    thanks for the identification. Are they both the same species? The vendor told me they were supposed to be 2 different ones. And the flowers do look different one from another on the 2 plants.

    Kind regards,
    Wouter
