One of the long petaled species. This one has the third petal and no pouch. I wish this pouchlessness would pass onto it's progeny

Do you know if any one has tried to breed a lindenii hybrid back to lindenii? So you have a double shot of 'no pouch'? Could work...

As far as I know, that's correct.

lindenii likely lost its pouch after it evolved a third anther that comes into direct contact with the stigma.

As for exstaminodium, I've read that the pollinia are in contact with the sides of the stigma.
