Diaphananthe sanfordiana Szlach. & Olszewski, in Fl. Cameroun 36: 744 (2001).
Diaphananthe pellucida subsp. sanfordiana (Szlach. & Olszewski) R.Rice, Prelim. Checklist & Survey Subtrib. Aerangidinae (Orchidac.): 30 (2005).
It is said to be similar to Diaphananthe pellucida but has larger flowers in which the lip is transversely elliptic (wider than long), with a small tooth in the mouth of the spur, and the margins of the lip denticulate rather than fimbriate.
This species was described in 2001 in honour of Professor William Sanford who has made many interesting contributions to the study of orchids in Nigeria and Cameroon.
As given for the genus.
