Your photosEdit

Hello, Dalton Holland Baptista, gratulation for your wonderful pictures of rare orchids. Greetings. Orchi (talk) 23:35, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Dear Dalton, thanks for your infos on my page. Next week I will ask some questions to you. I think we have a simular opinion to KEW. Cheers. Orchi (talk) 19:52, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Identification of Quekettia-specs from SurinameEdit

Hello, Dalton Holland Baptista, thanks for your interest in my photographs of Quekettia-specs in Commons-category Unidentified Quekettia. As a result of your opinion I looked into the genus again, and also consulted some more of my old slides. I came to these findings:

  • According to the CHECKLIST OF THE PLANTS OF THE GUIANAS there are 3 species of Quekettia in Suriname:

Quekettia microscopica Lindl. [GU SU FG]
Quekettia papillosa Garay [SU]
Quekettia vermeuleniana R.O. Determann [GU SU]
(source: CHECKLIST OF THE PLANTS OF THE GUIANAS 2nd edition, Washington, 1997, page 160, available on Internet).

  • The name you suggested for the yellow-flowered Quekettia, Stictophyllorchis pygmaea, is an accepted name in the World Checklist of selected plant families from Kew, I copy:

" Stictophyllorchis pygmaea (Cogn.) Dodson & Carnevali, Lindleyana 8: 101 (1993). This name is accepted. Distribution: Trinidad, Venezuela to Ecuador 81 TRT 82 VEN 83 ECU 84 BZN " This sp. seems to be not endemic to Suriname.

  • In "Orchids of Suriname", by Drs M.C.M. Werkhoven, Paramaribo 1986, 2 Quekettia-species are mentioned:

1. Quekettia papillosa: "..Leaves terete...Inflorescence erect, loosely branched...Flowers pale yellow... " (page 217, photo on page 199).
2. Quekettia vermeuleniana: "...Leaves compressed, to two-flowered...Sepals white, petals greenish yellow with pink margins.." (page 218)

It seems reasonable to me to assume that my photographs of the "yellow-flowered Q." is Q. papillosa, and the "white-flowered" is Q. vermeuliana (although in my photos the colour of the petals seems to be white).

I hope that you will find the time to look into this, and send me your opinion. Muito obrigado!!

Friendly greetings, Maarten Sepp (talk) 14:07, 25 October 2008 (UTC)

Quekettia specs, Caluera surinamensis, Habenaria, Batemannia colleyiEdit

Dear Dalton,

Thanks for your reply om the Quekettia-question, I have made some changes in Commons according to your (and my) opinion.

As regards Caluera surinamensis: I have never seen it. I looked it up, it is named by Ronald Determann, in 1983, and according to Orchids of Suriname by Ms. Werkhoven it's "rare in forests at 400-500 m. altitude"(page 91). Maybe it was collected in the plant collecting expedition in the Wilhelmina mountains in central Suriname, Ms. Werkhoven and mr. Determann took part in that expedition in '81. I left Suriname in the beginning of 1983, all my slides are from 1972-1982.

I'm really glad you appreciate my photographs, they were lying around for 25 years but now they are used again, gives me real pleasure!

Two more questions for you: in category "Unidentified Habenaria" ( I have put photos of 2 kinds of Habenaria, spec. 1 is a plant from savannas (if I remember well I collected it in French Guiana), spec. 2 is a rather large plant from wet places and swamps, not uncommon. Any suggestions about names?

On the page about Batemania_colleyi ( I have put a small question (my photos and the botanical drawings don't seem to match). Maybe you can give me some clue about that one too!

Thanks for your time and interest!

Answers and questionsEdit

Dear Dalton, unfortunately some time has gone, but now my promised proposal. I think, you decide about the right name of Genera and Species. If you know new names, let us link the actuell accepted name by "redirect". For example I used this way in the Genus Cattleya also. Both names are present and the by KEW accepted name is written with bold letters.

A little note to your last comment: Besides you are very good experts in orchids in the Netherlands "User:Johan N", in Spain "User:MILEPRI" and in the german WP "User:Dietzel".

OK I have been avoiding to deal with these confusing genera and will try do be the most neural as possible when dealing with them. It is good that there are more people dealing with orchids so we can get to a consensus and my mistakes will be corrected.

And now some further questions: What shall I do with your images of Scaphyglottis brasiliensis and Acianthera aurantiaca?

Again, thank you for your help and correction here. My text was based on Dressler's of 2004 and it has been corrected now. It is perfectly right to call it Scaphyglottis reflexa, I corrected Scaphyglottis page in Portuguese WP already.
Please put Acianthera aurantiaca under Pleurothallis aurantiaca Barb.Rodr., Gen. Spec. Orchid. 1: 10 (1877)., for this name is not published yet, we can move it later, after it is published.

For today the last request: Can you have a look to Category:Unidentified Orchidaceae. Is the Cattleya a cultivar or a Species?, and since long time the following plant is unidentified: Category:Unidentified Catasetum. Can you help? Cheers. Orchi (talk) 16:43, 3 November 2008 (UTC)

I have no idea about the Cattleya, If I knew it is natural I might risk something but we don't even know what it is, I would place it under cultivars, but that is just a guess.
Yes, THAT CATASETUM! it is bothering me at the front page in Orquídea page of pt.wp!! I have no idea either, looks like it is a female flower of something. Anyway I am no expert on Catasetum species.
Sorry if I wasn't of much help today, ha!
PS: Other thing, Norris Williams and Mark Whitten published a revision of Maxillaria in 2007. I will follow their names and because Kew is not up-to-date, you will find all publication data in my website at Maxillaria new names and genera in Orchidstudium. Please whenever something seems wrong, just let me know. Cheers Dalton (talk) 17:40, 3 November 2008 (UTC)


Dear Dalton, glad to see you again here. I hope, that I can get your help for classification of some of our faverite plants in the next year. Maarten Sepp is very busy in illustrations of old (orchid) books. I believe the orchids become a good part of Commons. Today I wish you a Merry Christmas and a good New Year 2009. Cheers. Orchi (talk) 18:14, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Dear Orchi, sure I'll be around next year and will be very glad to help whenever I am able to. I have been busy with other things but will always be back when I have free time. I also want you all the best for the forthcoming year.Dalton (talk) 19:35, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Octomeria aloifolia or Octomeria aloefolia ?Edit

Dear Dalton, In Flora Brasiliensis 3.4 plate 127 fig. V ( I find Octomeria aloifolia. This is also in Kews checklist and in your article in the Portugese wikipedia. (pt:Octomeria aloifolia).
You uploaded a photo to Commons with filename File:Octomeria aloefolia.jpg, in gallery Octomeria aloefolia, I assume this is a typogr. error? Thanks for your answer (no hurry), and a very happy 2009!
Best regards, maarten Sepp (talk) 13:21, 2 January 2009 (UTC)

Unidentified PeristeriaEdit

Dear Dalton, can you help me to identify the Peristeria from Panama ahead. I asked Maarten also. Cheers (and good nerves with our IP, as we would say in Germany). Orchi (talk) 22:11, 2 February 2009 (UTC)

Dear Dalton, I got info by Dr. Günter Gerlach. He identified the Peristeria Panama as Peristeria pendula. Also he identified my first Peristeria pendula wrong classified plant as Lycomormium squalidum. I think the two plants have the correct name now. I hope, you end your inactive time soon. Cheers.

Batemannia armillata from SurinameEdit

Hi Dalton,

I asked you some time ago about my Batemannia colleyi photos, you suggested Batemannia armillata. I've found a good photo of that species, and it seems to me absolutely right, see here:

"Notes sur la présence en Guyane française de trois espèces d'orchidées" par Roger Bellone in: Richardiana. The quarterly journal dedicated to orchids, published by Tropicalia. ( here ), with photograph.

I'll make a new gallery for this spec. and move my 2 photos there. Thanks for your help, glad I have a good name for this spec.!

File:Caladenia pendens.jpgEdit

Hello Dalton,

you requested this file moved to Caladenia pendens. Whatever your reason for this request was, the image does show a flower of the hybrid Caladenia chapmanii × polychroma It was not a plant that occurs in nature. It was a plant in a pot. --BerndH (talk) 19:02, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
