    As far as I can tell, this is not a true name. Most likely 'Big Brown Spot' is the cultivar name of someone's plant that was awarded (or maybe just someone's nickname for this Chiloschista orchid).

    cheers,

    I think 'big brown spot' is descriptive and not an actual registered hybrid name. I googled 'chiloschista big brown spot' and got 1 website in the UK offering 'chiloschista species big brown spot'. I think yours might be lunifera, yunnanensis, or some similar spotted species. Or wait until it blooms.

    I was thinking lunifera as that has a lot of reference to big/large brown spots.

    I'm going to keep searching so if i find out a definate match i will post it here.

    Thanks for your replies
