This plant I bought as a seedling labelled A clavigera, which it is obviously not. I am a bit at a loss: the leaves are very similar to aer. spiculata, stylosa, or even aer. verdickii...but the flowers don't look like any of those. If any Aerangis expert have any ideas let me know. Been through all of Joyces book and have no idea.
Never mind the name, it is absolutely gorgeous.

This is my Aerangis appendiculata which looks similar it flowered a month ago
OMG! simply wonderful ! And awesome photos ! Can't help with the ID though. Someone find it out, I want to add it to my WL.
@TedNZ: thanks for posting. Beautiful appendiculata. The differences are quite large though: arrangement of the petals and their shape are different.
Maybe I have to resign to the plant beimg either a hybrid, a new species or mutation then (in decreasing order of likelyhood).
Just saw this. Wow, Lars, that is so beautiful. I hope you get an identification for this.
I have practically given up now.
I just bought Isobyl La Croix's book as it has an Aerangis key in it. That helped me to systematically eliminate what I don't have. The only plants which I couldn't eliminate from the key were immediately were alcicornis (not in cultivation and the lip does not quite have the right shape), thomsonii (plant shape does not fit), coriacea (same as thomsonii) and megaphylla. It was real annoying because some of the criteria on the key were too borderline (e.g. the spur is between 9-10cm's long and the key said "if spur > 10cm goto ..., else if spur < 9 cm goto ...", ...
However looking into these in more detail none of them really fit
Sorry Lars, Can't help with the ID but the blooms are very stunning. Thanks for sharing.
