    It is Aerides season although I am quite sure you would have guessed.

    When I saw that plant I made sure it followed me home.

    I was thinking you had quite a few Aerides, Nelson. How many do you have?

    Perhaps enough to crowd my growing area, but not quite enough to encompass all the varieties that are endemic here.

    Default Officially reported varieties of endemic plants are limited.

    When one is in an area where certain plants are endemic you would be able to see very subtle variations in the morphology.

    For example, there are only at most five officially described varieties of Phalaenopsis equestris, yet from my postings you have seen quite a number of variations from plant to plant.

    As you yourself quoted to me, there are only three reported varieties of Aerides quinquevulnera, yet when you are in nursery with dozens of them all in bloom, it is easy to see that there are possibly more, with variations from very subtle ones to very obvious ones.

    In human terms, more than 95% of the HIV strains found in the USA are of the B serogroup, but in Africa where HIV is thought to have originated, there are many more strains, and I would not be surprised that a few more disctinct groups would be described later.

    Thanks, Nelson!

    Your points are well made. And I appreciate the thoughtful eye from someone surrounded by endemic species and varities. You'll see your answer to my question around you, where I shall take it on faith, given your explanation.

    Orchids are an amazing family and I'm glad to be able to compare notes with fellow collectors world-wide.

    Up the forum!
