    Randy, it's strange, according to Kew list Luisia teretifoliais a synonym to Luisia teres. Is your plant stem arching or upright? Never the less pretty flowers. I like this genus.

    Hi Mietek,

    These are the synonyms of this plant:

    Luisia beccarii Rchb.f 1886
    Luisia brachystachys Bl. var flaviola Par & Rchb.f ?
    Luisia truncata Blatt. & McCann 1932
    Luisia macrocarpa Schltr. 1921
    Luisia tristis [Forst.] O.Ktze. 1890
    Luisia platyglossa Rchb.f 1863
    Luisia valida Rchb.f. 1862
    Luisia occidentalis Lindl. 1853
    Luisia zeylandica Lindley 1853
    Luisia burmanica Lindl. 1853
    Cymbidium tenuifolium Wight 1852
    Trichorhiza teretifolia (Gaudich.) Lindl. ex Steud. 1841
    Cymbidium triste [Forst.] Roxb. 1832

    Luisia teretifolia Gaud. 1828 - validly published name
    Epidendrum triste G. Forst. 1786

    Luisia teres is indigenous to Guangxi, Southern Yunnan and Southern Sichuan China, Taiwan, Ryukyu Islands, Korea and Japan.
    Luisia teretifolia is indigenous to Malesia, Australasia - Oceania, Indochina, and Indian Subcontinent.

    Anyway. Whatever they are, what we need is we collect them that are different to our beautiful sight...

    Cheers.

    Do you think both of them are teretifolia? I asked because the coloration/markings seems to be different. But the foliage looks the same.

    Mietek
    both plants are arching.

    I think you can safely say both your plants are the same species. A little colour variation does not make different species.

    Randy, sorry it's my ignorance. Habitus means, a general view of the plant.
