    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.

    [​IMG]

    Staminode looks similar as above.

    [​IMG]

    If there is no flower, you never no the plant will be album or not :D

    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.

    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 :D:D
