    These are tw o pictures which I have processed from files which bitepourrie sent me ; obviously there are many people in this forum who are much better placed to give a proper opinion on the identity of a Phillipines native species !
    But I have an Aerides lawrenceae which looks very much like this, except for the colour, so I suggest A lawrenceae alba.
    When you can see the leaves they look nothing like Rhynco gigantea ; of course there are several other Rhynco species, , at least one of which I don't have , but I think that all the Rhyncos I have seen have more or less same size flowers all along the spike, whereas several Aerides have this reducing size leading toi the fox-brush effect which I can see here.

    Other opinions will be read with interest to se if I am thought right or wrong.Name:  Aermaybe1.jpg

    The plant looks like a pale-coloured form of Rhynchostylis retusa, common in the Philippines and much of south-east Asia.
