Dendrobium teretifolium x linguiforme APNI*
Synonyms: Dockrillia teretifolia x linguiformis APNI*
Description: One main stem (unlike Dendrobium teretifolium) that cascades down.
Leaves similar to teretifolium but not as long and are thicker with the tendency to grow upwards (later succumbing to gravity).
Flowers midway between the parents, but more towards Dendrobium teretifolium. Flowers 8–10, well spread on raceme, off white to creamy with much red streaking. (Based on Smee 1999 who treats this hybrid within the genus Dockrillia).
Flowering: Flowers mid October.
Distribution and occurrence: Rare putative natural hybrid found in May 1989 at Sussex Inlet.
Plants growing on Casuarina glauca.
NSW subdivisions: SC
