What makes var.chlorophyllum different from the normal concolor? Is it just that it has a few less dots in the flower? Please tell me all you know about this sub classification.
Thanks !

The leaves are the diffrence. They are paler and without reddish dots on the underside.

Best greetings

Yes, when examples of this race were first discovered they were not in bloom. There was much excitement because the lack of red pigment on the undersides of the leaves seemed to indicate that the population could have been albino concolor. Then they bloomed, with nice normal concolor flowers with the same dark spots normal concolor has. Still, it is a nice race of concolor.
