There is no variety luteum of Ascocentrum aurantiacum. Ascocentrum aurantiacum ranges in color from bright orange to yellow orange. The variety status was given by Martin Motes to distinguish a lighter yellow flower. This may actually represent Ascocentrum aureum which was recently rediscovered. Both are very similar and close inspection is required for proper identification.
