    i suppose your right, but bases upon what your looking at it could be confusing to some. I would think a person learning would be less confused if you just took the time to type, at the most, four letters and a period. Its would also help people in there search on the internet for specific pictures of plants. Especially someone who doesnt know breeding of orchids or other such plants that cant be bred with orchids. But in this sense "spectabilis" specifically is used for names in many other plants including orchids and none orchid species. Not everyone who looks at these threads are orchid crazy people. I think and was just adding that being politically correct can help in teaching more then confusing. This is why i pointed it out. On that note, i totally understand where your coming from. Thank you for the confirmation
