Pleione-limprichtii-2022-05-04***Determined to be Pleione pleionoides, not Pleione limprichtii (May 2022);  based on the identifcation by Ron Parsons, who has seen these in situ and supported by photos in orchidroots and the OW, which match this flower; flower size does not match P. limprichtii; P. pleionoides and P. bulbocodioides are very similar; however, the key in the "Flora of China" states the difference is whether the distal end of the lip is deflexed (P. pleionoides) or not (P. bulbocodioides); this flower also matches photos in the SOF.***  

Judging Center: CSN

Award Number: 20222300

Award Date: April 24, 2022

Awarded As: Pleione limprichtii

This plant was awarded an AM by the California-Sierra Nevada judging center as Pleione limprichtii, being that there is only one prior award. I asked Ron's advice before processing it and he does not think it is correctly labeled, so I am challenging this award.
Here is the description of the award:
Twelve flowers on ten upright inflorescences up to 3.5-cm; sepals and petals white overlaid rose-lavender; lip white, side lobes overlaid rose-lavender, midlobe spotted orange, lip fringed marginally; column white; substance light; texture diamond dust.

I have asked for any additional photos that they might have.
