    I'm not sure the origin. I purchased it off ebay, and I think it came from Seattle. I'm leaning towards Coelogyne longipes. Does anyone have a dichotomous key to this section?

    Bill, here is the half of the key to Sect. Proliferae from Clayton's book. From the shape of the pseudobulbs (ovoid or ellipsoid vs cylindric or narrowly ovoid), the key eliminates C. ustulata, C. shultesii, and C. prolifera.


      • Lip with 2 or 3 keels but no papillae, terminating well onto the mid-lobe --> 2.
      • Lip with Keel in the form of minute pappilae on the mid-lobe and ciliate [Flowers rich mahogany red with black lip.] --> C. ecarinata

      • Lip mid-lobe oblong obcordate, retuse, undulate, crenulate, 3 keels, median keel short, lateral keels parallel, terminating two thirds onto mid-lobe, initially low, then elevated, end abruptly. [Flowers white or creamy, sometimes with yellow] --> C. raizadae
    • Lip mid-lobe cordate, distinctly bi-lobed and mucronate tip, 2 slender keels terminating at the middle of mid-lobe, prominent on mid-lobe only. [Flowers yellow.] --> C. longipes

    Thank you Naoki. That's more evidence pointing to longipes. The flowers on mine are not what I would Call yellow, but based on other photos of longipes online, it seems there is a lot of variation in color. Mine fits within that spectrum. So for now I'll label it as Coelogyne longipes aff.

    Good afternoon, I was wondering if any body knows where to find Coelygne ecarinata, tsii in the US, viewed photo and was overcome with lust for this plant.

    Congratulations Chuck! I saw your post and went and looked at my plants. I've posted a comparison of what I'm calling aff. longipes (plants on right), and tsii (plants on left) that I purchased from Popow.

    Definitely different plants, but both are great!

    I got Coel. tsii from Hengduan Mountain Laboratories - Wenqing Perner. She will be in the US to speak at the Cymbidium Congress the weekend of the Santa Barbara Show. and is taking orders now for delivery by mail when she is there (Mid March). It's on her pricelist, which I am sure she'll be happy to send to you.

    Hi John, I got my first clone from the Perners as well. March is a good time to get one as it should be starting to think about new growth and is slightly easier to establish,

    If anyone is still looking for this plant, Last year I made two divisions of the CHM awarded plant. Both are currently in bloom, one with three inflorescences and other with two. PM me if any interest.
