    Default catasetum integerrimum

    catasetum integerrimum, name derived from the smooth border of its hood, in latin name integerrimus (if my memories recall it correctly...)
    the smooth border and the round shape differentiates integerrrimum from ctsm maculatum, in which the latter had a more rectangular opening of the hood with serrated edge
    the last pic is the close up of the ventral part of the hood

    Weird looking but nice. That last photo is excellent, Ian; Are those the trigger mechanism at the back ? If they are then this presumably is the male flower. I have not seen this Cstm before so I looked up IOSPE and discovered that the flower can shoot the pollen sac a distance of 8 feet! Have you tested this? Thanks for posting.

    yeap, these are male flowers. i had pollinated these one before but never try to shoot one out to see how far would it fire. 8 feet!!! that is amazing, maybe will try it out the day after tomorrow. hope to enjoy the bloom for another day before blasting the catapult.
    the integerrimum is under the hooded catasetums series. i loved the hooded catasetums! other cool looking one would be ctsm maculatum and ctsm viridiflavum
    thanks for both the info and the comments Yew Sung.

    Interesting. I thought these were female flowers. IMHO, I like the pileatum types better than these hooded types..

    tried to catapult one of it today.........nyeah...the pollen landed itself about slightly over a foot from where it was fired. perhaps those raised in the wild can perform better...haha

    yeap....of all the hooded ones, this one resembles a female flower the most. as for me, i personally prefer the weird looking one, green or white fits me best. the one pileatum i like is the white one.
