    Looks like sangii x hirsutissimum.

    Yeah, it sorta does. But no hint of hirsutissimum in the staminode IMO.

    I'll take both! Thanx for posting. I was speaking to Andy [of Andy's Orchids] today and he was telling me that before CITES restrictions a lot of species were imported by big scale growers and he has seen tranlienianum and helenae for sale in Trader Joes! (Of course, we don't have Trader Joes in NYC!)
