Author's notes

I've been trying to work out if this is D. aestivum or D. decurvum but I honestly have no idea. I'll leave this one up to the moderators.

This one D aestivum. The aestivum flowers are generally more bulging than decurvum, less dainty, and with a longer and more projecting labellum.
