Here's a link to a photo of my S macloughlinii, you can clearly see the long spur and rounded side lobes.



S woodii, note the smaller spur and truncated side lobes.

Very few people know that there actually are 8 species and 9 distinct taxa within the genus Stenoglottis. And they are often misidentified. Most of the woodii in cultivation is actually macloughlinii or can even be hybrids between macloughlinii and woodii.

Well thank you for posting that. I just checked and I have two little pale greenish nubs starting to emerge. Only two of the spikes ended up developing, blooming with about 5-6 flowers each and the rest blasted, probably because of the heat. The leaves started dropping shortly after I made the initial post and it was completely deciduous but the end of July. I just left it in the pergola, let it get rained on, ignored it and hoped that it wasnít ďpermanently deciduousĒ, lol. I donít remember it waking up quite so early last year but the weather just started to cool down today, so hopefully it can grow well like it did the previous winter

Excellent photos and descriptions. I was having a hard time being able to understand the difference between the two from some of the images found on the internet. Somehow, I didnít manage to get very good pics of mine. The spur doesnít seem very long (Iíll have to check next year if it blooms again) but the side lobes are definitely pretty rounded. Possibly a hybrid? In all of the looking up of the Stenoglottis I did, I had no idea there were that many different species. I can see how they would get mixed up and crossbred.

Take a look at the photos on my website (link in signature)... I think this one is definitely macloughlinii ... also tends to be a much smaller plant. My woodii is larger, with much taller spikes, and definitely different flowers. (I have some confidence in that ID too)

I agree. You plants are definitely macloughlinii, woodii is always white and never pink, but macloughlinii can go from white to deep pink as yours
