Phaius tankervilliae (Banks ex I'Herit) Bl. f. veronicae S. Y. Hu & Barretto

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.
