Nice but, that's not discolor. Cut me off a piece for the next Montreal Show.
Oh? What makes you say that?

If not discolor (eventhough confirmed by Leo Glicenstein, jewel expert extraordinaire and Charlot Teng, Taiwan breeder of amazing jewel orchids as well as Thailand growers), what do you think it is?

I’m intrigued and curious of your assessment and proof?

No, I do not. (In case you forgot, Leo is the King of Frankenstein crosses!!)
Yes he is. He said this is Ludisia discolor var Sandstone. No doubt was a species to him.

If there’s no literature proof or pics of such ‘hybrid’, hard to validate?

Do note the flowers are Ludisia flowers with no influence of other Jewel genus.

Is there a site for Leo and Charlot for info.

OK. Cut me off a piece. :) So I can have more fun with US Wildlife and Forestry!
💡 Ah, finally it dawned on me: of course, it's a hybrid, Eric...that's so obvious, that you may even fool the US W&F! 😁

And, because you only mentioned "the war" once, you might get away with it... just like the ingenious mr. Fawlty!
