Notes:

Mini phalaenopsis that reacts to cold or prolonged drought by dropping its leaves.
Tamlong Suphachadiwong received the first specimen of this species in 1987 from a collector who discovered it on a mountain high above a river. Based on a color photo, a single flower, and a report on the found plant, G. Seidenfaden described the plant as Kingidium minus in 1988. When the genus Phalaenopsis was revised, E.A. Christenson integrated Kingidium into the genus Phalaenopsis, and the species was now called Kingidium minus. Since the genus Phalaenopsis is female, minus had to be renamed to minor, but Phalaenopsis minor had been described by Liu in 1988. Thus, Christenson's description was invalid. His new description was published in 2011, now the species was named Phalaenopsis finleyi.
