Common Name Glicenstein's Cischweinfia [American Orchid Photographer current]

Flower Size 1 1/2" [3.75 cm]

Found from Costa Rica to Colombia as a small sized, warm to cool growing epiphyte with oblong-elliptic, strongly compressed, sharply two angled pseudobulbs enveloped basally by foliaceous bracts and carrying a single, apical, linear, conduplicate, acuminate leaf that blooms in the spring and fall on axillary, racemose, 2 3/4" [7 cm] long inflorescence with inconspicuous floral bracts and carrying one to 4, fragrant flowers.

Often confused with C dasyandra but it has a round ruffled white lip with five brown or lilac rays.

This species is said to be by many references synomonous with C dasyandra but I have left them separate pending further research.
