    Very Nice Coel. incrassata Tom, nearly sure not monilirachis!

    Don't think it is Coel. incrassata but I am not certain about its identification either. The tag says Coel. monilirachis though.
    Do you have any reliable info or photos of Coel. monilirachis?

    Thanks, Piotr. May I ask who confirmed my plant's identification? Peter O'Byrne?

    No, it is Elisabeth from France, she will publish her new complete book about Coelogyne this year.

    I did a little search and looked very close at my flower. Except minor difference on th lip compared to those posted on internet, I think it is Coel. incrassata. Thanks again.

    icrassata has at least two described variations, so some differences are of course accepted.

    O/C quite often there will be some minor differences among the same species if they are collected from different locations...
    Well, also thank Elisabeth for me then.

    This one has been identified as Coel. kelamensis.
