As I'm here in agreement with Rudolf, I would love to see photos of all the alleged leucochilums forming the ancestral lineage for your flower to ascertain whether they are all indeed leuchos - or whether somewhere along the line a (good) godefroyae misidentified as leucho shows up?...in order to keep the lineage correct, that this plant came from breeding only from leucochilums and sibs....
Re A: Since your flower does not adhere to the botanical description of leucochilum, it might instead count as proof, that the decision to raise leuchos to species status is wrong - and that it, even more so if your plant's ancestry is profoundly leucochilum, would make much more sense to sink both leuchos and godefroyaes within the species godefroyae, as the outside, pure white pouch in casu can't be seen as a stable trait.A) Since leucochilum has full species status (WCSP 2021), it is more important now than ever to keep this separation intact.
B) Thus, this will be judged as leucochilum, and not godefroyae, all over the world today.
Gorgeous beauties both of them!
Stephen, you are indeed right, there weren't any 'black' godefroyaes, when the species was described - but the original, botanical description of godefroyae had it with spotting on the outer lip. Both Leslie's flowers adhere to that description.There werent any 'black' leuco/godefroyaes when the species was described. So does that make it a new species or form?
