2 is also from Koh Kai
and its hairy staminode
3 is from Koh Hong (an island on east coast)
Shape and hair is similar to 1,2
4 is from Au Pranang or Au Nang.
Au Nang is on mainland Krabi not far from sea shore.
Hairy heart shape staminode.
I just saw your album on facebook... Amazing variation! Thanks for sharing..
5. is from Koh Yoong.
Koh Yoong is near Koh PeePee, quite far from mainland.
Only Paph there is P.godefroyae, not any P.exul nor P.niveum.
P.godefroyae from this island has less spotted under leaves.
Some are found totally green, looks like albino.
But the flowers are still having texture.
Spikes, ovary are also bright green too.
Staminode looks similar as above.
If there is no flower, you never no the plant will be album or not
6. is from Koh Panak (1)
Most of plant from this island has white flower with red texture.
Spotted pouch is often found there.
Again, staminode is covered with hair.
7. is also from Koh Panak (2), east coast, facing Andaman sea.
The red spotted/texture spreads over the pouch.
But it is lined not scatter as found in P.bellatulum.
8. is also from Koh Panak (3)
This one has more yellowish flower and 'leucochilum' forma.
Hairs are still at the edge of staminode.
9. is also from Koh Panak (4)
This is fma.leucochilum with white flower.
Staminode with hairs on the upper rim.
10. this plant is found in main land of Krabi, in the area call 'Nai Chong'
Yellowish flower has scatterred spots on the pouch.
Staminode is more rounded when compared to others above.
Anyhow, the staminode is still covered by hairs.
11. This is the one from 'Chumporn' which suspected to be the same population was describe by Godefroy-Lebouf those days.
Chumporn province is located on east coast of souther Thailand, facing the gulf of Thailand.
The flower is relatively smaller than which are from Andaman side.
All flowers are in white color.
Spotted pouch are usually found.
Shape of staminode is vertical eclipse with elevated flanges.
This particular specimen has no hair.
That is all I have now.
My friend and I have limited number of 'east coast' plant.
But those ones we found from orchid shows have the same characteristic.
Please find below the staminode beauty contest
Very impressive blooms, and interesting stamis!!!! Thanks for sharing those!!! Jean
Really thanks for shearing,is an extremely interesting thread.Will like to visit those places someday.
I agree with Jean! Very impressive. As for the contest...the round one wins for me!
This is not leucochilum
not Paphiopedilum godefroyae forma leucochilum, but P. godefroyae as all the others, isn't it?
Montri, I thank you very very much for sharing your photographs with all these interesting variations! So impressiv! I wished to have such nice variation of some species in my collection as well!
Yes, but I thought this was about leucochilum ...????
