    I get the picture some years ago from Vietnam and put it also in the net. A frinend of mine made the picture on a market in Vietnam, but the price for this plant was too high. So he made only the picture. It is perhaps a new species, but was never described and is nameless.
    So we are waiting for this exciting species.

    This shall be the plant

    When I visited the vietnamese orchid society in Los Angeles, I showed also this picture. So it comes on the webpage.

    Here the link to my presentation in LA, including also this species.

    I think this was in an earlier thread, also.

    It sure makes me wonder what else is out there, undiscovered and un-described.

    First one I know what it is, not worth discussing...

    Second one is a helenae "vinicolor" as they sell it in Vietnam. No value at all, the bloom is identical to a normal helenae, flowers a bit muddier.

    It seems to be a dwarf form of callosum. For sure it is not like the first pics, which is clearly a variety of helenae.

    The picture of the dark flowers, look like inmature flower buds...peeled open. callosum is a good starting point for IDing it.
