Tetragonum spot. A strange genetic problem on tetragonum based Australian Dendrobiums

This nasty looking spot occurs on a very limited number of hybrids that have tetragonum variety tetragonum in their background.

It is a genetic fault and cant be cured.

It doesn't seem to effect the orchids health, just its appearance.

Older Hilda Poxon and Ellen seem the most prone with 50% tetragonum.

Sometimes the tiny spots are invisible in the background of the leaves,but come out heavily when the clorophylle in the leaves is weakened by frost or hot sun.
