Grosourdya muscosa:
Like G. appendiculata but leaves to 10 by 1.5 cm. Bracts over 2mm long. Dorsal sepal 6 by 2mm. Lateral sepals nearly 3 mm wide, joined to the whole length of the columnfoot. Petals 5.5 by 1.5 mm. Side lobes of lip 3 by 1.7 mm, back edgs purple mottled, the midlobe widening suddenly from a narrow base, almost triangular, white with purple spots, the sides curved u[ward, the tip curved downward over the spur, short, acute, the spur willow, almost in line wiht he dolumnfoot, swollen somewhat fro the constricted entrance, 3.5 mm long, 2.5 mm wide. Column 5 mm long, curved, its foot 1.5 mm long.
Since vandas are typically strap-leafed monopodial epiphytes that produce flowers with a tri-lobed lip and nectary spur, early taxonomic debate focused on Vanda sanderiana's unique vegetative and floral characteristics: leaves deeply channelled, withstanding more than average sunlight exposure; and flowers with bi-lobed lips, spurless. Rudolf Schlechter proposed the monotypic genus Euanthe (1914) to effectively place this orchid in a class of its own.
For all such distinctive traits, Vanda sanderiana remains fully inter-fertile with other vandas. The revision of Vanda alliance names and classifications (2013), on the basis of molecular taxonomy, has not resulted in any transfer of V. sanderiana to a separate genus. Conversely, it remains the principal species incorporated in Vanda hybrids, being the progenitor of 372 named progeny and more than 6,300 named descendants in the International Orchid Register.
