Rhyncholaelia digbyana, the source of those wonder frilled lips we love in today's modern cattleya hybrids, is the subject of a beautifully illustrated feature article by Stephen van Kampen-Lewis who talks us through its history and breeding influences.  Kelsey Huisman shares with us her tale of hunting teagueias in Ecuador. This rare, fascinating genus from the Pleurothallidinae comes from the high elevation cloud forests of Andes certainly making them something that almost none of us experience in the wild. Rounding out our August issue, David Rosenfeld continues his series on the icons of our orchid history with Hugh Low - of Paphiopedilum lowii, Phalaenopsis  lowii and Dimorphorchis lowii fame.
