Awarded As: Dendrobium hekouense

The US Mail lost the awards forms and we are working on getting the awards numbers ETC. The species is very distinctive and new and I wanted to make sure that the photos were uploaded to make sure that another award didn't get submitted that would have precedence over this one. The exhibitor was Cordelia Head - I need to get clarification from her whether this is a personal award entry or to J&L Orchids. The plant was awarded as Dendrobium hekouense. original publication of the new species

I believe this is correct. Here is the detail of the description from the link: "It belongs in the section Dendrobium and is more or less akin to D. wangliangii, from which it differs by its dorsal sepal larger than petals, lateral sepals broader than long, cylindrical mentum 1.2–1.3 cm long, and a trilobed lip." Nothing on SOF. Matches photo on IOSPE
I agree this is correct. It's a really distinctive species.
