But, please bear in mind, Leslie, that time spent doesn't garantee the quality of the outcome!My leucochilum ‘Blackest Knight’ is still being discussed at AOS Species Identification Task Force to see if it’s leucochilum vs godefroyae after more than 3-4 months. I’m still awaiting the results lol. Must be quite heated to take this long,
I hope, however, we are in the realm of a luxury problem: that is, should the plant be awarded as P. leucochilum or as P. godefroyae?
It might take some time, though, as botanists seem to fiercely disagree about the taxonomic status of the plants within, what Braem probably might name, the 'godefroyae complex' (probably = I'm too lazy to get up and check his monograph on the genus and hence wildly guessing). Or maybe Braem finds the problem not complex at all and sink all plants into one species, "godefroyae"s, "leucochilum"s and pseudo-leucochilums - the abhorrent and logically contradictory group of bastards, that are grouped into leucochilum-per-definition-having--an-outer-unspotted-pouch-with-spots-or-even-heavier-colouration!
Oh, dear, oh dear! I hope and pray for, that the Leuco Nostra-infiltrators within the Identification Task Force take a firm stance and succeed in their defense of it!
