    Default Ackermania caudata

    Native to South America... fan shape plant similar like Cochleanthes very strong fragrances especially early in the morning and towards evening. The blossom last for almost about 10 days maybe flava form.

    Lovely coloration. Pity the flower doesn't open up more to really show off its beauty.

    Very nice orchid flowers. The bloom in the second photo is by far my favorite. I like how open that bloom is in that photo.

    cheers,

    Sounds like a pretty scent...but i'm with the first comment; I'd like it better if that top petal lifted so you could see inside more. Still...it's a pretty one and with a nice scent i'd probably forgive the petal placement. lol

    Aha Zain - you really got me there ; I have never heard of Ackermania as a genus ; I could see the probable affinities among the Chondrorynchas etc in the Zygo's, and thought - " I bet those devils have been up to it again changing names" - so I went and looked in IOSPE. Lo and behold they haven't , or rather they have, the new name is I think Benzingia - or maybe that was the old name - and I haven't heard of that either.
    I pride myself that I'm not often stumped, but here I am . Clean bowled !
    One (can) learn a little something every day. Great !
