Papilionanda The Girls' Brigade Singapore (Pda. Wong Poh Nee x V. tessellata) (Woon Leng Nursery, 2017) is a 1/8-terete vandaceous hybrid that bears the genetic imprint of two famous ancestors: (i) the tetraploid Papilionanda Josephine van Brero (1936), imported to Singapore from Dutch Java and one of Southeast Asia's most influential primary hybrids; and (ii) Vanda tessellata, the type species of the genus, first known to the botanical community after its discovery in British India during the early decades of the 19th century.
The new hybrid is essentially the progeny of JVB and Vanda tessellata, backcrossed again to V. tessellata. An unmistakable family likeness may be discerned when its flowers are compared against those of close relatives, including its own seed parent Papilionanda Wong Poh Nee (JVB x V. tessellata) (SBG, 1963), the 2015 repeat cross of Papilionanda Mimi Palmer (Pda. Tan Chay Yan x V. tessellata) and Papilionanda Martha Hartley (JVB x V. Mimi Palmer) (Grezaffi, 1992). [Emrys Chew 2017-07-14]
