Comments : For quite some time now there is still a discussion going on about the nature of the taxon 'richteri'. Some say it's a species. Others consider it to be a natural hybrid of the species Phrag. pearcei and Phrag. boissierianum.
In Sander's List of Orchid Hybrids. Supplement (April-June 2018) the registrar writes: "Phragmipedium x richteri previously treated as a species. WCSP treats it as the hybrid Phrag. boissierianum x Phrag. pearcei, a concept that includes Phragmipedium x merinoi O. Gruss, which could be treated as a nothovar."
