In Bloom: Phalaenopsis thalebanii

Phal. thalebaniiPhal. thalebanii

These are two first bloom seedlings of Phalaenopsis thalebanii ('Dark Star' x self). Although the flowers are marked differently, I can't tell what is physically different between this species, cornu-cervi, and all those related species. The exception though is mannii, which is the only species in the group that does not have the large flattened inflorescence.
