Oncidium-cajamarcae-Irene-CBR-(Pr0vl)-2023-10-22 *SITF confirms that this plant is Oncidium cajamarcae (Nov 2023).

This species is characterized by branched (usually three), laxly flowered inflorescences with the flowers opening from the bottom of the branches out in more or less succession. The lip is 3-lobed with banded or blotched red to red-brown around a white callus, which is usually marbled with pale brown. These characteristics match this flower. These flowers are a little large for this species, measuring 4.5 cm across compared to 3.5 cm in the description written for the Orchid Species Bulletin by Gary Yong Gee.

Oncidium-lucianianum-2023-01-06 *SITF confirms this plant as Oncidium lucianianum (May 2023).

This is correct based on the description in Baker and Baker's 2006 "Orchid Species Culture: Oncidium/Odontoglossum Allaince" under the old synonym Odontoglossum lucianianum; this species has two keels covered with soft hairs and a column with a pair of wings in the form of slender, sharply pointed, fingerlike projections that emerge near the stigma. Matches illustration in Chase et. al. 1997, "The Pictorial Encyclopedia of Oncidium" (also as Odont. lucianianum) and to photos in the OW.
