    hi,
    this species is also known as Phalaenopsis deliciosa, but its 4 pollinia and the small saccate spur sets it apart from this genus.

    Hi, my miniature Phalaenopsis blooms looks like your flower, however the foliage are very different with spotting are like the Stuartina, Philipinensis and the Schiliriana.

    Can you kindly help name its specie?

    Thank you!

    Ron, Kingidium deliciosum to me is a different species, despite what many taxonomists think. Like you I also would not want to add too many features in the definition of Phalaenopsis, so Kingidium I believe is a good genus- there is no spur in Phalaenopsis, whereas it is present in Kingidium.

    Raul, your plant is Phalaenopsis lindenii.

    Lovely close-up shots Ron. Sometimes one appreciates species orchids more in photos than the actual orchid itself because most of the time the flowers are so tiny.
