    "The second one is papilionanthe vandarum."

    BZZZZZT! No.

    "Oh, goodie, does that mean I won?"

    No. You have to guess first.

    I don't know what either one is but for kicks and grins I'll make a guess.
    #1 ... Dendrobium falcorostrum
    #2 ... Miltonia sp. (I haven't a clue what it is but it is a cool looking bud)

    Some wild guesses:
    #1 Eria copelandii
    #2 A very floriferous purplish-colored Rhynchostele cervantesii

    So what do I win? :rolleyes:

    I think the 2nd one is a Polycycnis. I'll take partial credit in the form of 2.5 Angs if i'm right.

    Nope. No one's named the correct genus for either, yet.

    It sure looks that way. I can't speak for anyone else but I know I'm stumped. :bang:

    How about Epigeneium for the 2nd one?

    Correct answer must include genus and species.

    Dale, I don't know much about that genus, I was just giving my best guess. It is a beauty in bud though.

    Epigeneium cymbidioides for the second one maybe

    Epidendrum volutum for the first even though it was already posted...

    <sigh> Epigeneium cacuminis for the first one? Still no clue on the second, Marni I also thought it must be a Rhynchostele (I guessed cervantesii) but Dale said no, though perhaps we just don't have the right species... madrensis, maybe?

    I guess I didn't really give up after all. :rolleyes: I'm going to go pore over some illustrated references on the Oncidium/Odontoglossum alliance now. Can you all tell that this is really bugging me? ;) Great contest idea, Dale!

    "I'm going to go pore over some illustrated references on the Oncidium/Odontoglossum alliance now."

    You're barking up the wrong tree. In the topic starter I said one species was Neotropical. That means the other is Old World. Epidendrum volutum is Neotropical so that means the second species is Old World. The genus isn't Epigeneium, nor any of it's synonyms, as far as I know.

    Thanks for setting me straight! I guess I missed the post about Epi. volutum so I didn't realize that one was settled as the neotropical of the pair. Time to get out a new set of books... :p

    Er, clarify that: I saw goods' post re: volutum, but I missed yours so I didn't know the question was already settled. Swamp and citrus flower, mmmm! :D
