Phaius tankervilliae (Banks
ex I'Herit) Bl. f. veronicae S. Y. Hu &
This coloured form was discovered in flower, and transplanted
to his home by Ronald Clibborn-Dyer in April, 1971. It flowered
repeatedly in cultivation, and was exhibited in the Hongkong
Flower Show in March, 1972. It differs from P. tankervilliae
f. tankervilliae by the lemon-yellow sepals and
petals, the lip being more tubular with a smaller ruffled yellow
apical portion, and the anther being densely pilose on the sides.
This form is named for Mrs. Veronica Clibborn-Dyer.
