    Default Amesiella phillpinensis (?)

    Here's an orchid Phillip picked up at the orchid show in Tampa yesterday. It was tagged 'amesiella philippinense', but, after looking at Jay's IOSPE, I wonder if it is really an Amesiella monticola... amesiella philippinensis nearly always has a yellow "throat", and this one is pristine white all the way through. I've researched OWiz and seen a couple of awarded ones described as pristine white, or all white, so perhaps that is the case here. However, looking at IOSPE, I noticed that there is an Amesiella species called 'monticola', which IS all white and seems to have a slightly differently shaped lip than the usual philippinenses - a more rounded - club-like rather than spade-like- lip.

    Anyone want to chime in?

    The photos aren't Phillip's usual quality because I took them with my cellphone - but you can see the color and shape okay. The full view shows how this particular blooming, anyway, is sort of backwards, but I wanted to show the nectary, which is about 4 or 5". The leaves are also about 5" long.

    I've toyed with trying monticola but haven't seen one at a show in awhile.

    Very nice flowers.

    Here are some measurements for A.monticola,

    6cm across the lateral sepals,
    Nectary up to 11cm, measured from the tip of the midlobe.
    And its fragrant, especially in the evening.

    hope that helps!
