    You got a profile shot? It would make the Icones research a little easier.

    I would like to know the ID of this one too. The Green lip is neat.

    So, Dale, do you have any clues, say...country of origin, size of plant, size of flower?

    Three inch plant, 1 cm flower. I don't know the country of origin.

    I'm not trying to be difficult (I come by that without trying), but is that 1 cm the height or width?

    OK, so far I'm striking out, but I've not given up yet.

    Dryadella kautskyi from Brazil looks similar, but Luer shows it about 2" tall. D. summersii seems close. Jon's right, they all kind of look the same. Working from a photo is difficult, you should send me a piece of the plant for careful examination.
