Phal amabilis?

Post your questions and photos to identify a species phalaenopsis. We maybe able to identify a primary hybrid between two species parents. Generally we cannot identify a complex hybrid.

Phal amabilis?

Post by theshatterings » Sat Mar 26, 2016 7:06 pm

Got this as amabilis var. grandiflora but the petals might be a bit too full/overlapping for it to be real even though the callus and midlobe of the lip are somewhat accurate for amabilis subsp. amabilis? Thoughts?

I don't know the provenance of the plant unfortunately. But I guess it's possible to sequence this plant because there's a recent publication describing the vicariance and some deeper phylogenetic reconstruction of this species complex: http://bmcplantbiol.biomedcentral.com/a ... 015-0560-z

It's not a bad dataset really -- they used wild collected plants and have triplicates and some outgroups for control.
