You should be able to tell straight away from the smell. Percivaliana is a bit spicy and not very floral. Mossiae is much more floral. Percivalliana also is a pretty orangy yellow vs. lighter yellow for mossiae. A bit out of bloom season for either.

I like it, the alba form of this species is still on my wish list. Must be very fragrant!
