    It has been identified in another forum like Epidendrum stamfordianum.

    Blooms look similar, but stamfordianum is an Epidendrum that has pseudobulbs and this is definitely a “reed stem”.

    Thanks Chuck. You are right. Although the flowers look very alike, it must be another species.

    After explaining your arguments in the spanish forum another person has identified the plant as Epidendrum raniferum. I think now is right. :)

    Yes, although I think E. raniferum is currently considered a synonym of E. cristatum by Kew. I was just looking at IOSPE and there was a comment that the species is being treated again with some possibility that the Mexican form could still be considered raniferum
