    Here are some shots of my Duida form of U. asplundii.

    With my hand for scale



    A couple front shots





    The whole inflouresence



    And a couple profile





    One thing interesting about this form is that the spur is very much longer than the typical form and the bloom itself is about 1/4-1/3 the size. In fact it is almost U. jamesoniana-like at first glance.

    LOL. Couldn't tell you, I am not much of a fingerprint buff. All my right hand prints are the ying-yang type. My left hand is all bull's eye type except for my index which is the peak/mountain-type

    That's funny...I was going to make a comment about the fingerprints myself. lol

    That is really a beautiful and interesting flower.

    Hi Pyro,

    Nice pics congrats! Very interesting what you said about it looking somewhat like U.jamesoniana, because both species grow together on Duida! I wonder if your plants originate from the population I found there ~3 years ago on the N slopes of Duida? I wouldn't be surprised if there were hybrids in that population...

    Best Wishes,
