Maxillaria calantha confirmed as Maxillaria longipes

















Dear Russ,

Your award 20082165, Maxillaria calantha has been confirmed as Maxillaria longipes by the SITF[Patricia] with the assistance of Mario Blanco, Eric Christenson, and Mark Whitten(Dec 2008). There is already a CBR to this species, but CHM or a quality award are alternatives. The next step is yours.
For future reference, M. calantha is from southern Peru. In reality it is probably a variety or form of a complex of a broadly defined M. longipes. The photo in N. Orchids of Ecuador is mislabeled, not your fault.

Patricia Harding, SITF chair
