    Default Coelogyne species

    Hi everybody,
    need your help. Is there somebody out there who can probably identify my Coelogyne.

    could be a faccidia, viscosa, huettneriana, lactea.
    I already contacted some of my friends- best answers were huettneriana or lactea.
    Thanks for your help
    Albert

    It is really nice, Albert. I cannot help with the identification, but I am guessing that maybe Nelson will be able to identify it for you.

    Cheers,

    He is ntgerald here in OrchidTalk. You can send him a PM with a link to this thread. He may or may not be able to help with the identification, but he has posted many Coelogyne specie orchids here in our community. Good luck.

    Cheers,

    I don't think it is a Philippine species. And even then, I am not an expert on coelogyne, sad to say.

    I will send the photo to my friend Elizabeth in France. She is in the printing stage of a book on Coelogyne, and has used two photos of mine for that book. I am quite sure she can help us.

    Default Just in, a response

    from Elizabeth.
    Hi Nelson,
    glad to hear from you !
    That species is C. huettneriana, but 2 of the other IDs suggested are very close species.
    C. huettneriana is easily identified by its fat ovo´d shining pseudbilbs, close to each others, with 2 long petiolated lanceolate leaves and its proteranthous inflorescence, which is not the case for C. flaccida or C. lactea (a synonym of the former). There's been a lot of confusion about their IDs, only Seidenfaden put an end to it in 1975.
    C. viscosa has very narrow leaves, hence the synonym C. graminifolia.
    I enclose photos of the 4 species, you can publish them on your forum if you wish.
    Yours
    Elisabeth





    I took the opportunity to apply labels on Elizabeth's photos.

    Wow.. she sure sounds like she knows her stuff, and the photos are just gorgeous.

    Please send her a great big thank you from us here at OT, for sharing her knowledge with us.
