Hi Horst,

This belongs to Heaven!


Lucky me!

Lucky me, I got it from the Heaven as a loan.

Sophronitis purpurata or Cattleya purpurata??

Is it still Sophronitis purpurata or already Cattleya purpurata??

still Sophronitis purpurata

It is still Sophronitis purpurata at the moment.......

monocot search returns......

Sophronitis purpurata (Lindl. & Paxton) Van den Berg & M.W.Chase, Lindleyana 15: 118 (2000).
This name is accepted.


Distribution: SE. & S. Brazil
84 BZL
Lifeform: Pseudobulb epiphyte
Family: Orchidaceae

However Horst....there is no variety estriata accepted so we need to change the name in the title on this post.

Regards wellsy
