    Default Aerides of Palawan, a new undescribed specie

    The so-called Aerides odorata of Palawan should be distinguished as a new specie. There are lots of consideration why it should be called a separate specie. Here are my observations:

    1. This plant thrives in warm and humid habitat in Palawan island while the typical Aerides odorata thrives in cool and dry habitat and it hates being too wet.
    2. The leaves of the specimen from Palawan are thicker and slender than typical Aerides odorata.
    3. The spur (hypochile) of the specimen from Palawan is pointed and extended unlike Aerides odorata it is short and not pointed.
    4. The lip (labellum) of the specimen from Palawan is much serrated than Aerides quinquevulnera and Aerides odorata and it is elliptic; is visible when flowers opened unlike Aerides odorata it is hidden and enclosed by lip side lobes
    5. The flowers are much larger than Aerides odorata.

    Please refer to the photos that are compared...

    You need to remember that Aerides odorata is an extremely variable species, found in a wide range of elevations throughout southeast Asia. The plants you have illustrated above are perfectly good Aerides odorata.

    Well, those are my observations. But if we can have them Genetic Analyze, there could be more differences that what we trying to look at structures just like the genus of Phalaenopsis. From analysis of Kingidium, Polychilus, Stauroglottis, and others, in genetics they are in one group, in the same line...

    Last time, when I saw all types of the Aerides quinquevulnera, I saw a kind (Aerides quinquevulnera var. purpurata) which is different and that was Aerides inflexa. All they have thought that was a part of Aerides quinquevulnera but looking at its flower structures, we could understand its differences.
