Restrepia-wageneri-2023-11-12 *SITF confirms that this plant is Restrepia wageneri (Dec 2023).

This plant matches Baker and Baker's description in the OW and Luer's description in the Icones Pleurothallidinarum XIII: Systematics of Restrepia. R. wageneri is allied to R. elegans and R. lansbergii, but differs in the thinly striped synsepal.

Photo in also closely matches this plant.
