What kind is this orchid?

  • schildi by schildi

    Nearly all of my last classifications have been different pictures of this orchid. I've classified it mainly as green-winged orchid, but the spots don't quite match. Is that just a local variety?

    Hi, the green winged orchid is a very variable species when it come to colour; this one is indeed a GWO. If you're not sure, look for the fine greenish-purplish 'pencil lines' on the outside of the opening flower.
