    I purchased this as Chytroglossa marileoniae, but I'm not 100% sure on the ID as marileoniae seems to have more red in the flowers than this plant. I'm guessing this is Chytroglossa aurata. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    It isn't about color at all. For starters, the lip shape is wrong for aurata. Here is one of my auratas.
