Zales-goeringii x erythrostylum

Something different with the shape of erythrostylum coming through on this delicate flower.

I love this! Very nice labellum which really stands out with the crisp white sepals and petals. A bit of me wishes the petals weren't peloric, but I could umm and ahh over that for some time.

Great photo too, the lighting and focus really brings out the lovely detail.

Any chance of a pic of the whole plant?

Tom, I will post a pic of the whole plant by Sunday. Just to correct one of your thoughts, the petals are not peloric but are the normal way Cym. erythrostylum grows and this trait has been carried forward on this hybrid.

Tom here is a pic showing the whole plant and spike as requested. Five flowers reasonably spaced along the spike but unfortunately two facing in one direction and three in another.

Good sized flowers on what looks like quite a compact Cym. Really nice.
