Brassavola reginae

Brassavola reginae

Brassavola reginae Pabst, Bradea 2: 288 (1978).

I got an award on Brassavola reginae Pabst today. This species is somewhat controversial as some authors consider it syn. with Brassavola cebolleta. Kew recognizes it as a seperate species as do others. Of interest would you go to Brassavola cebolleta "Fuchs" awarded in 1986. It is obvious that this is misidentified as reginae/cebolleta is a single flowered species. That plant is probably perinii. Therefore the award should be corrected which leaves a reginae/cebolleta open for a CBR. I have attached photos and description. Better photos on the 2 page description form will be sent to you along with the award photos which are better on mine. I will try to call you to discuss this.
