Default identification assistance

Here we go again. I have posted pics of three plants needing ID'd on my
page. Two were cites seizures (species? vanda and aerides)at the local
conservatory and the third is a friend's maxillaria which is obviously
mislabelled. Any tips in IDs for these would be appreciated.

Tennis,

The Max resembles a Max variabilis more than a tenuifolia (coconut
orchid). I don't know about the aerides as that seems small for this
species in as far as leaf span goes (for a while I was collecting
these).

I just can't restrain from commenting on "Two were cites seizures
(species? vanda and aerides)at the local
conservatory . . . " I just can't believe the Feds can confiscate
orchids then have a sale or give them away (Yes, I might have bought
them too if they were available at my local conservatory -- not a
commentary on you, Tennis). If such is illegally brought into the
country, perhaps the goods should be confiscated and returned to the
country of origin or destroyed. If such is illegal, why is it not
illegal for all? Perhaps, I just don't understand the ways of the world.

I believe the rules are that they will try to return them to the country of
origin and if they are refused, any plants propagated from the originals can
be sold. Check out the Paph vietnamense info on Antec Labs site. I don't
believe they can sell or give away the confiscated plants. Also, Tennis
doesn't say that he somehow acquired the plants...

And www.orchidcourt.com doesn't resolve in DNS for me

No, I don't have the plants. I have volunteered there repotting orchids
for the last five years, and the new orchid person is actually good and
motivated and asked me if I could ID the plants for them.

My page is up and working fine, even from the link you posted above.
Perhaps your server was having volume problems.

Tennis, I was looking at your who am i page last night. From there I
tried to go to your home page www.orchidcourt.com . It didn't work the
first time but did a minute later. From there I was linking to your
other pages and after a while it stopped letting me do that. The last
two I tried failed to connect so I gave up.

There was some sort of DNS problem, it's working now for me. No idea on the
IDs tho.
