Acrorchis roseola

Acrorchis roseola

Dear Sirs: I received a provisional CHM/AOS at the Chicago Mini Show on Sat. 10.11/09 for Acrorchis roseola 'Mountainside' Dressler 1090 (a monotypic genus from Costa Rica and Panama) Now I need a proper ID. Ron McHatton spoke to the Wisconsin Orchid Society on 10/04/09 and said that ID's were now done by a team of experts. Now that Selby wasn't doing them. I will try to attatch some digital photos that I took today. I think that they a not the proper size to send, but my digital skills leave a lot to be desired. Please try to ID the plant for me. I have to send the results to the Chicago center and James Spatzek.
Best regards, Walter Crawford
