    Reading about the differences between A.garayi and A.miniatum, I wonder if this should be considered as the former ?
    You will see what Jay says about the differences. Here we see no veining in the tepals, and lips which are albeit only slightly, recurved. I would also think that here we see the more elliptical petals and deeper colour .
    I am interested to hear your comments ; I have two "forms" of "miniatum" in my collection , and it has only recently dawned that they might be different species - so I was perhaps, on the lookout, when I saw your posting.

    Of course its a lovely thing , whatever it is called !

    Hey Geoff,

    don't forgett Asctm. aureum, this is also a strange species within this complex. Seidenfaden wrote some interesting lines about this in Opera Botanica 95.

    But I think that the name is right and it could be even aurantiacum ssp. philippinense.

    I was once in a fascinating argument/discussion with a group of knowledgable orchid people, including no-less than Dr Phillip Cribb - of whom you woill have heard/read etc. I think we were on the subject of the Paph victoria-regina, chamberlanianum ,liemanianum etc group, and I was able to say that I grew ( still have) a plant which is from a division from the original discovery importation etc of chamberlainianum ( how, is another story ) and that reading his words on the subject, and his keys for separating the species, I could not make any sense at all. Now we get to the key bit ; he (Cribb) accepted that "the whole concept of speciation simply does not work very well with orchids".
    Incidentally after wading through a lot of recent stuff about the evolution of man, I come to the same conclusion with animals, at least Homo species. But its a great talking point.
