    One of the smallest vanda flowers with the characteristic is whale's tail.

    The lip looks like a snake tongue to me as well as a whale tail. Very neat.

    Either or are correct and I noticed most of the hybrids the lip very closed to serpent tongue.

    I noticed most of the hybrids the lip so dominant looks like serpent tongue but I still prefer the species.
