    I think your missing an 'h' lol

    Is this the one that is now Dinema polybulbon? Or is that a seperate genus? I have both, and they look identicle in terms of plant shape and growth (except i can grow mine cold, outside About 5-10C.?)
    Very cool pictures Branka, the macro shots are simply the best! (if i could attach a song file, i would attach that song )

    You're absolutely right, what a sloppy I am...
    By the Kew checklist this is now Gomesa radicans, Ornithophora radicans is a synonym. Tnx dear Jordan!

    I like it Branka. It reminds me of a fanciful bird in flight who has suddenly put on the brakes. Super photographs of a super orchid. AL
