Aerides rosea

Hi Steve (& Jay),

I believe that this is Aerides rosea [syn. Aer. fieldingii] and not Aer. maculosa.

Aer. maculosa has a differently shaped lip that has much larger side-lobes and a non-pointed lip apex. As far as I am aware Aer. maculosa is not in cultivation. All seedlings and plants that I have seen with the name Aer. maculosa have in my opinion been Aer. rosea.

I wrote an article about the species of the genus Aerides for the Australian Orchid Review that was published in 2002 & 2003.
