Size:  24.7 KB. Bought this last month at an orchid meeting. Seller had several of these orchids, labelled Dend. superbiems. Someone has questioned the correct tag on this orchid. Could this be an Anosmum? as they say.

    Nice one, but definitely not superbiens. Perhaps superbum (anosmum var. superbum), but anosmum and its varieties often have much longer canes. Could be parishii or Nestor (anosmum x parishii).

    flower looks like superbum, but mine blooms with all its thin sharp pointed leaves on. This looks like it drops all its leaves.

    Actually, fellow members, I just think it could be parishii, anybody else got a thought?

    Could be. Parishii generally has shorter more stocky pseudobulbs that are a bit uneven in thickness throughout its length. But Nestor can also be a possibility as it is variable depending on the parents used.
