Encyclia-seidelii-2021-05-12***Confirmed as Encyclia seidelii (Jun 2021); E. seidelii, E. andrichii, and E. xerophytica are very similar; however, based on the shape, carriage and size of the side lobes relative to the midlobe this best fits E. seidelii; this is an excellent match in color and size and form of the lip, as well as the long inflorescence; matches the photo and description in the IOSPE.***
