Acineta arcuata Schltr. 1917 Lectotype Drawing by Schlechter

Common Name The Arching Acineta [refers to the arching column]

Flower Size

Described without locality and the type was destroyed during WWII so all we have is Schlechter's original description which only detailed the flowers and not the plant.

CAUTION Kew does not recognize the validity of this species, I include it, as the column is so different from all other Acineta, so that it can be rediscovered by some lucky orchid adventurer.
