    Hi,

    Haven't been here in a while.

    I had this Holcoglossum bloom out that I've lost the tag on. Looks close to amesianum, but much fuller than I would expect.

    Any ideas?

    I agree with Holcoglossum amesianum.

    It has the small orbicular lip side-lobes, three longitudinal keels on the disc of the lip. The flower seems to have a full shape but this may change somewhat as the flowers mature. Its lip is rather pale compared with others - but still pleasing.
