    A friend of mine is currently on a birdwatching tour in the island of Cuba. I asked him to take photos of any orchid he came across. Here is the first photo he sent me. I think it is Encyclia plicata. 20217014_10155726315775757_1066677203_n.jpg

    The species seems to be quite variable in lip color.

    Awesome plant. Looks like it may be Encyclia sabanensis. Very similar to plicata and phoenicea. Thank you for sharing
