Laelia Harpophyllum, Kautskyi, Kautskyana

Can someone explain the differences between these plants?

Does anyone have a USA supplier for these Laelias or their primary hybrids?

In terms of culture not much. L.kautskyi/kautskiana are synonyms. Harpophyllum is a much larger plant and has some white on the end of the lip. Both are from the Atlantic rainforest (what's left of it) north of Rio.
