    Default Aerides quinquevulnera var. nov. “Moonchild”

    I don’t know what the designation exactly means.

    I posted blooms like this maybe two months ago as “Aerides quinquevulnera var. flava”. However, I had the opportunity to look at the entries at the calendar of the Philippine Orchid Society for 2006, and there was and identical bloom, with this epithet above.

    Aerides quinquevulnera var. nov. “Moonchild” it is, then. I made several calls to POS guys; the doyen of them all wasn’t answering the phone, and the rest have no idea about this plant at all.

    To top it all, someone from Malaysia just posted the same plant on flickr, and there it was named as Aerides odorata var. alba.

    Enjoy!

    Hi Nelson,

    I love the pristine color!

    According to OrchidWiz, the accepted name is: Aerides quinquevulnerum, and the varieties listed in my database include vars. farmeri, flava and purpura. But AOS awards switch from quinquevulnerum to quinquevulnera around the mid-nineties, so there's some disagreement.

    This doesn't help much though.
