    Looking in my archives, I found this article by Eric A. Christenson who surely interest many readers. (Orchids - May 1998 - p.490-492).
    During the past 25 years, plants similar to Phal. mariae, but differing somewhat, were imported from the Philippines.
    Phalaenopsis mariae bears laxly pendent inflorescences and flowers with strongly revolute margins.
    The new entity produces erect to arching inflorescences, and flat flowers.

    At first, these plants were though to represent a naturally occuring, lesser version of Phalaenopsis Tigerette (mariae x pallens).
    The remarkable uniformity of these mariae-like plants led Henry Wallbrunn, PhD, to test their supposed hybrid origin (Wallbrunn, 1989).
    He selfed a plant of the mariae-like plant and raised a population of seedlings.
    If the parent was indeed a hybrid, one would expect a broad range of diversity in the second generation according to standard Mendelian genetics.
    He found no variation in the seedlings and concluded that this new entity was not a natural hybrid between Phal. mariae and Phal. pallens, but was intead a distinct species. (...)

    Two years later, Gruss and Röllke (1991) gave this entity a formal name, Phalaenopsis bastianii. The species epithet bastianii.
    The species epithet bastianii honors Bastian Röllke, the son of the author Lutz Röllke.
    Although the lip of Phal. bastianii is almost identical to that of Phal. mariae the plants are immediately distinct.

    Unlike Phal. mariae, Phal. bastianii is characterized by its erect inflorescences and flat flowers.

    In Phal. mariae, the pendent branches of the inflorescence are borne at sharp angles less than 30 degrees while those of Phal. bastianii are borne at right angles of 90 degrees.

    What a great price. I have a tiny one bought this spring. Wondering why it's taking so long to grow!
