    Default Pomatocalpa setulense?

    I've bought this plant as Malleola setulense, but it's an fantasy name, so I think my plant calls Pomatocalpa setulense. Can somebody confirm?

    My knowledge here is limited, but I believe your plant is Pomatocalpa spicata. Pomatocalpa setulense has been treated as a synonym of P. spicata, but I believe the midlobe of P. spicata to be shorter and fleshier; the flowers also are not as widely opening as plants regarded as P. setulense.

    Right now, I've looked at Kew garden list, Pomatocalpa setulense is a synonym to Pomatocalpa spicatum. Crazy world

    It is a crazy world. Let's blame those wacko orchidologists who just can't seem to make up their minds...
