Dendrobium derryi

Hi Pak Sheikh,

According to Jeffrey Wood this is Dendrobium derryi Ridl. (1907), which is the correct name for Den. cinereum J.J.Sm. (1920) as it was published earlier. You have spelt it as cinerium.

You will note that the photos shown on the Internet Orchid Species Photo Encyclopedia website both represent the same species.

Den. derryi:
Den. cinereum:

The World Checklist still has not caught up with this fact, so it still recognises Den. cinereum as an accepted name.

Reference: Jeffrey Wood, Orchids of Borneo Vol. 4, 2003.

Hope this helps.

Name fixed

Hello Pak, when I checked this submission of Den. cenerium I found it to be non existant so I looked around that area of spelling and could only find Den. cerinum and that is a synonym for the accepted name Den. sanguinolentum. Had a quick look at the flowers and they were similar, I did the edit with the information I had to work with.

Now you have come back with the correct spelling of Den. cinereum, that's great, no more confusion.

I'll edit this submission to Den. cinereum.

Regards Bill

Now its confirm

Hi Bill,
Thanks for the confirmation.
