    Well at least some put them as synonyms, one source says tsii lack of keels on the lip, either way it is rather rare species known from just couple locations in China - Yunnan close to Northern Burma, on a east slopes of Gaoligong Mountains at Gaoligongshan National Nature Reserve.

    It was long time on my top wish list, got it few months ago and finally I got it to flower as well ;-) small flowers but unusually red in this genus makes it very attractive sp.

    Love it. I am going to see if it is available in the U.S. market.

    Holger Perner has it on his price list. Andy might also have it now.

    Don't let that stop you. It only gets listed if there are enough to make it worthwhile.

    No way! I've been googling and think I can accommodate this baby. I'll call him in the morning.

    I have a plant labelled Coelogyne tsii. It has tall thin pseudobulbs, and has a climbing habit, with large spacing along the rhizome between pseudobulbs. The flowers are smaller in relation to the plant compared to yours. The flowers on mine are more brownish red. I'm not saying mine is correct, just seems different than yours. I failed to take a photo when it was in bloom last, perhaps this spring I'll get a photo to compare to yours.

    Very nice! I've been thinking of getting one, but the timing hasn't worked out (Heng Duan seems to come to the US only when it is too cold).

    "along the rachis as it extends with each flowering season, slightly zigzag, to 20" "
    This is from IOSPE. Am I understanding it right that this one blooms multiple seasons off of the same inflorescence?
