    Default Phalaenopsis aphrodite

    Hi,

    this species is endemic to the Philippines and is correctly called Phalaenopsis aphrodite subsp. aphrodite, unlike its relative subsp. formosana, which occurs only in Taiwan.
    the difference is in the callus, which shows elevated "teeth" in our species.

    thanks to Jim and Wally, for identification and info!

    cheers,
