    This species has been posted a few times recently. This one appears to have the tepals more heavily reflexed, the spur longer, and the lip flatter and more deeply lobed than those recently posted. I have no experience with these so I don't know what is typical.

    The lip is 25 mm across and the spur is about 35 mm +/- long (I don't know where the spur actually starts on the flower structure). The lip and the spur are in the same plane.

    This one comes from John Klinger and this is the first blooming under my care. Thanks, John.

    Thanks, Kip.

    I grow it warm, very bright (almost full sun), daily water but dries quickly.
