Oeceoclades cordylinophylla confirmed to be Oeceoclades perrieri

From Ron:

This award has been sitting around for over a year. The exhibitor evidently pickled flowers and sent them, along with images of the plant, to one of the approved botanical authorities on the list at the time. To make a long story short, the samples were evidently destroyed because the authority couldn't identify the plant and CITES prevents sending samples out of the country. The exhibitor has been waiting all this time for an identification and recently started rattling the cage only to find out that it's been dumped. I might be able to get images of the plant and measurements of the plant but needless to say the exhibitor isn't happy.

Natural spread 1.3cm horizontal x 1.3 vertical,

Lateral sepals 0.3cm wide x 0.5cm long, .
