C.nobilior versus C. walkeriana

The main difference in between C. walkeriana and C.nobilior is that C. nobilior has two leafs on a pseudobulb.
C. walkeriana has only one leaf (some exceptions exist).

C. nobilior flowers grow always from a spike which parts from the rhizome never from the top of a pseudobulb.
C. walkeriana flowers grow normally from the top of the pseudobulb but also from a spike which parts direct from the rhizome.
The C. nobilior flower has always a yellow diamond shaped spot in the center of the lip.

C.nobilior v C walkeriana

Thanks Horst, I couldn't have explained this any better than you have.
I have both these species, and only pay attention to them when they are flowering, other than the fact that I give the C.nobilior a long dry period.

burnau whats the difference between this and walkeriana? i was told all white walkerianas were hybrids? thnaks henry

difference

Henry, There is no doubt that C.walkeriana and C.nobilior are closely related, I always understood that C.nobolior has larger flowers. I'm not sure, but I also think that C.nobilior has a longer and drier resting period.
I think that Horst would be able to give a fuller explanation of the similarities.
