speciosa or tetraspis
Default speciosa or tetraspis

I have both speciosa and tetraspis, or at least that's what they were bought as. Both have now bloomed, I can't tell the difference, maybe they are the same species in which case which one is it?

Both, had the same fragrance, a sort of burnt plastic, not entirely pleasant smell.

First pic is "speciosa" second is "tetraspis"

Some say that the two species are the same, while others say the two are. closely related. As a rule, plants of speciosa seem to have more sounding to the petals and sepals than tetraspis.

Looking at the pics, then having more rounded petals fits the speciosa I'D.
