    I know this species as curnowiana which typically has the dimpling on the upper leaf surface
    as can be seen in the photo
    fuscata has a smooth upper leaf surface.

    Aerangis curnowiana is a synonym, the good name is Aerangis monantha, but you may be right...
    We would need a better shot of the leaves to be sure!!

    I'll take one tomorrow - I remember the panel in Joyce Stewart's book that has monantha, umbonata, fuscata and punctata all side by side. I think I got this one as francoisii...which I thought was a subspecies of fastuosa?

    I can't imagine not having these species in my collection. Love these lilliput Aerangis.

    Nicely done! Are the flowers long-lasting or short-lived?

    Thanks Tom! I'm not sure since this is only the second time I've bloomed this plant, but I will keep track and see
