    Default Phrag. richteri PHOTO

    When Phrag. richteri was discovered in 1994, it was not immediately clear whether it was a species or a natural hybrid. However, subsequent selfings have shown sufficient genetic homogeneity that most now consider it to be a true species, including the RHS. Phrag. richteri is closely related to ecuadorense and pearcei, but it seems to have the largest flowers of the group. "Phrag. amazonica" is a synonym, with "richteri" being the earlier-published and therefore valid name.

    Ok: I don't understand how an MD resident has the time or brainpower left over after doctoring to give the kinds of details you do with your pics.

    I, for one, am impressed.

    Thanks for posting the great info.

    Thanks guys. Lisa, this plant produces that cleft chin, although I'm not sure if that is necessarily characteristic of the species. It may be.

    Louis, I had that description from its last blooming a couple years ago.

    Gilda, thinking about oncology. So you really wouldn't want me as your doctor!
