    It could another species of Aerides.

    Aerides thibautiana is likely smaller than Aerides leeana, and the hypochile is not pointed unlike Aerides leeana.

    Maybe it could be a hybrid between the two species (Aerides thibautiana x Aerides leeana) or (Aerides thibautiana x Aerides inflexa).

    It cannot be called a natural hybrid since Aerides leeana is endemic to the Philippines, whereas Aerides inflexa is confined in Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.

    Hi Mietek,

    In 1987, Eric Christenson mentioned the possibility that two Philippine species known only from the type specimens, Aerides augustiana and A. burbidgei, are probably natural hybrids. The former is supposedly a natural hybrid between A. quinquevulnera and A. thibautiana, while the latter is presumably a product of A. leeana and A. thibautiana. No locality records exists for the two species, although A. burbidgei, named after Frederick Burbidge who traveled and collected extensively in the Sulu Archipelago, may have been collected somewhere in the Sulu group.

    What is interesting here is the involvement of A. thibautiana in these theoretical hybrids, as this species has always been regarded as endemic to Sulawesi. Could it be that this species also occurs in the Philippines, and that A. leeana, which has never been recorded farther south than Samar, also exists in Sulawesi? If so, this will again prove that plants do not know how to read books. The flowers of your plant agrees very well with A. leeana's, except that the sidelobes are very short. But to give you further assistance, here is a short description of A. burbidgei: flowers solid purple, midlobe 2 mm long, sidelobes 0.5 high x 5 mm wide. Based from this description, your plant may not be A. burbidgei. What it is, I do not know, at least for the moment.
