    This species has been discussed here before as Selenipedium chironianum. It seems a stretch to assign a new genus to a population with characteristics that could all be accounted for by an error in one developmental gene influencing floral differentiation.

    I think there is no reason to separate this new species . Or if yes, how we deal with phragmi lindenii?
