Aerangis distincta

This is our only Aerangis but after this flowered I will be looking for more.  This beauty is mounted on a tree fern slab.  Like the Angraecums, this white flower is fragrant at night to attract moths who are the only insect capable of pollination.  Look closely to see the spur which comes out the back of the flower.  The flower was only 1 1/2 inches tall but the spur was 8 inches long!  Flowered here December 2001.
