Add Comment
Encyclia yauaperyensis is supposedly unique in that it is the only South American Encyclia species with a triangular midlobe that is also apiculate and that apicule is rounded or obtuse rather than sharply pointed. I don't see any of these features in this specimen. the midlobe looks to be almost globular.
