Dendrobium christyanum

Dendrobium christyanum

Original submission as Dendrobium bellatulum ???

Dist: India, Burma, Thailand, Vietnam and China. Flowers 3.5cm across. This species is closely related to D.christyanum. But D. bellatulum may be distinguished from D. christyanum by it's narrow lip with a reflexed mid-lobe which is obscurely 2-lobed.
The plant pictured could be a cross between these two species, although I'm not sure why anyone would want to do this.

ID?

I would be very hesitated to call this one a pure Den. christyanum. The flower form looks like Den. christyanum but some details of the lip on your flower are missing. The lip of Den. christyanum should have few (five?) hairy lines.

christyanum

Those five hairy lines Tom are called keels.

I still believe this is Den. christyanum for now.
