    Flower size is about the same(2cm vs 2.2cm). much appreciated if anyone here can tell me/us the differences between these two species.
    hi tom,
    i asked jim cootes about d.ypsilon and d.lamellatum, although he is no specialist on thai species, but he couldnt see any difference.
    furthermore it came out that d.platycaulon is endemic to the philippines and has 1 obvious ridge in the labellum, and d.lamellatum is more widespread (excluding philippines) and has more ridges in the wider labellum.

    so, therefore the info and pix on IOSPE for d. lamellatum is wrong.

    and i have to agree with your id on zain's plant, d. lamellatum. sizes and colors can be different though.
    there might be a difference on your plant and zain's in the anther cap, zain's plant seems to have only 1 with a little beak, unlike yours with 2 and broader.

    pls correct me if im wrong,
