    3rd and 4th pictures are excellant, Thomas. I like the spotting in the lip. The two "teeth" in the lower area of the throat remind me of snail appendages. Quite interesting.

    I have never encountered this orchid before, but it is certainly unique and fascinating in its beauty. It reminds me of a Chinese Dragon. AL
