Terry, that's comment is what I was waiting to hear. The book was written by collectors/dealers, and any peloric orchid here is call mutated and the cost sky rockets. I have been to hundreds of flower markets in more than twenty provenance, and any time I see a peloric flower on a orchid or yellow or gold in the leaf the seller automatically wants to call it a mutant and jack up its price.

Another problem is the names are just common vender names, and many of them look the same, I cant distinguish any morphological difference at all.
It's all about the sell....... make money.
