    Got this in a shipment a few years back and was labeled as centipeda but after blooming this year, I noticed the pink freckles on the flowers. Is it centipeda or leuarachne or maybe something else? Thanks!! DSCN0311.JPG DSCN0313.JPG DSCN0311.JPG DSCN0313.JPG

    Great find! I think it is leucarachne...I’ve been looking for that species. Does it last longer than centipeda?

    This one only stayed open for a day, but it did have three flowers this time. The flower petals are quite long also. Got it from Ben from OOI Leng Sun Orchids at Redlands. I have another one from them which was labeled as Bulbo. ovalifolium but when it bloomed looks like Bulbo. depressum. It's like....Surprise!!! Change another tag. :rolleyes:
