    It came from Andy's Orchids in 2017. This is the only Brassavola I have, so I can't compare it with B.nodosa, which is somewhat similar to this species. in addition to the flower size and leaf shape, Withner's book pointed out the difference in the column shape, and you can see the dissected flower in my blog post if you are interested. It seems to flower frequently, but somehow I haven't had a chance to take photos. I had a bit of time this round, but it made fewer flowers than usual.
