I am submitting this one before I enter the award so we can have a heads-up.

I will be circulating two pdfs containing summaries/reviews of the genus Pseudolaelia . They are too large for posting. The images of the multiple blooms were taken after the judging and were requested by me so I could have more to submit.

All measurements are in cm.
