I see this as a housekeeping issue. This received a CBR in Houston in March and Marv Ragan has confirmed the id but under the rules he can't directly. He's been told this by me and Patricia as well but he hears what he wants to hear and we can't move on with the processing of this award unless either someone else confirms the id or we deal with it through the SITF. These are the only images we have and the description is reproduced below. We should also note in the posting that Marv believes it to be properly identified.
From the award summary: Eleven stellate flowers on one 68-cm branched inflorescence on a five-pseudobulb plant; pseudobulbs suborbicular, bifoliate, clustered, 7-cm tall; leaves 35cm x 3.4cm; sepals and petals apple green, sparsely spotted brown; lip trilobed, slightly ruffled, white, five purple striations centrally; anther cap yellow; substance good; texture matte; species native to Venezuela; recognized for rarity and educational value. Natural spread: 3.1cm horiztonal x 3.3cm vertical Dorsal sepal: 0.7cm wide x 1.9cm long Petals: 0.5cm wide x 1.9cm long Lateral sepals: 0.5cm x 1.8cm long Lip: 0.9cm wide x 1.9cm long

Pam has asked me to send you photos of Encyclia garciae-esquivelii awarded to me in March of 2008 at the Houston Judging center. Marv Ragan did the ID and you have his determination. I do not know why the Houston Judging center has not sent you photos from March's judging. David Hunt Houston, Texas
