The newly discovered Phragmipedium

NO.7 Phrag. andreettae


                by p.J. Cribb & Pupulin  


 A new species of Phragmipedium andreettae was discovered from northwestern Ecuador, altitude 500~1000 m and was described in Lankesteriana 6(1): 1-4, 2006. This new species is closely allied to P. fischeri, from which it differs by the narrow leaves, the pale rose to white flowers, the elliptic to obovate petals with reflexed margins, the reflexed margin of the dorsal sepal, the narrower and pale rose lip, and the longer than broad and bifid staminode.
 The inflorescence is erect to arching-suberect, 13-16 cmlong, unbranched or with one branch. Sepals are pale pink. The petals are white and flushed with pale pink on the back. Dorsal sepal is elliptic, obtuse, 2.1-2.2 x 1.2-1.3 cm. The petals are elliptic to obovate, rounded with a size of 2.4 x 1.6 cm. The lip is urceolate, 2.1 x 1.2-1.4 cm in size. Their habitat is similar to that of Phrag. fischeri.
