    It's a relatively newly described species, close to C. harpophylla and C. kautskyi. I got this from AWZ Orchids 3 years ago. The midlobe of the lip is narrow. I'm growing it at a warm-end of intermediate temp.

    Photos from June 19.

    Left petal and sepal are showing the abaxial surface. Others are showing the adaxial surface.

    Oops, I put this in a wrong section. Can an admin move this to "Non-Slipper Orchid Photos" section?

    I don't know this one but I love it. Looks like one of the epiphytes like harpo as you say.

    I think it was described in 2002 as genus Dungsia, but I haven't seen many available. After the import, it dropped most of the leaves, and it has been slowly recovering and I think this is the second year blooming. Are you interested in seeds? If so, I'll self next year. BTW, some of Neo did set fruits.

    Are the leaves almost black? Does this get a lot of light?

    Nice flowers...but shouldn't this thread be transferred to the forum for 'Non-Slipper Orchid Photos'?

    Kind regards, Jens

    Yes, I accidentally post in a wrong place, and I'm hoping the admin to move it. I don't think I can move.

    Philippe, the small junks do look like thrips, but they are actually seeds (I think it was from Phrag. boissierianum). I should have cleaned it.

    Yes, according to the original description, it is from Altantic Forest of southern Bahia, near Buerarema, elevation 200-300m. I think the geographic distribution is pretty limited.

    Yes definitely self it next year! I can't imagine this one showing up here. Great news on the neos! I wait with anticipation. I just bought a rather sickly division of a purple coloured neo on ebay. Way too expensive but the ''time to buy is when you see it''. If it survives and actually flowers I will post a pic.
