Acineta schilleriana (Rchb.f.) Rchb.f. 1863 Photos by Rodrigo Escobar

Common Name Schiller's Acineta [German counsel and orchid enthusiast 1800's]

Flower Size

Found in Colombia

Rodrigo Escobar vouchered [AMES] this plant as A schilleriana and it may be so, but Rchb.f's description is quite minimal and according to Eric Christenson 2006 the photos above are unique to the genus and they could be this species, but if not it is still different than others. Eric states that this one could also be the equivalent to the minimally established A superba var chrysantha.
