Restrepia-escobarina-2021-03-16***Determined to be Restrepia elegans, not Restrepia escobarina (May 2022); this has been a difficult plant to identify; using the key for Restrepia (Systematics of Restrepia in Icones Pleurothallidarum), the plant is right on the cusp of being a small plant (>10 cm) or a large plant (<10 cm) if a small plant, it keyed directly to R. elegans, if both paths are followed to their conclusions and compare the choices, R. elegans has the form and color, is closest to the size, and the correct color pattern with spots forming line patterns; but there is much variability and overlapping with several similar species, including R. chameleon and R. lansbergii. Note: many of the measurements in the Award Form appear to be reversed***
