    The photo seems to have bombed (at least on my browsers -- Netscape and IE).

    I get the photos, very nice they are too! That last photo looks just like the U. sandersonii I have, that looks like no other U. sandersonii I have seen - can you tell me anything about it? I have always wondered if it was the "blue" flowered form (since I was only aware that there were the 2 forms in cultivation, and I had the other) but apparently there are more forms than I was previously aware of!

    Hi,

    I got this form from Loyd Wix in the UK a couple of years ago, the flowers are very nice. He described it as a "large flowered form with broader more colourful Ďaproní with correspondingly large upper corolla. Possibly a polyploid clone".

    I also have form from another source, which isn't as attractive:

    I'm pretty sure that the plant you have labelled as U. blanchetii is actually U. parthenopipes. Nice plant though - mine just flowered for the first time yesterday.

    Hi,

    Could you give some more info about this? I've seen photos of both species on the web that look identical, except the parthenopipes on Fernandos Brazilian cp page which corolla (?) seems wider. I don't have Taylor's book myself, so any info on how to differentiate these species would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Christer

    I agree with Dodec on the parthenopipes, mine's bloom was almost identical. I think blanchetii is a more uniform mauve...

    U. blanchetii: Flower purple with an orange-yellow blotch at the base of the lower lip, 10-15mm long

    U. parthenopipes: Flower white white with an orange-yellow spot at the base of the lower lip, upper lip white to pale purple with darker purple streaks along the nerves, 4-6mm long.
