    Maxillaria spilotantha or not.
    Acquired as aff.spilotantha, but have my doubts. Anyone know for sure what this is? Am considering selling/trading it as it is not what I was expecting, but would like to have a correct name on it first. It has bloomed a couple times for me, up to five flowers at a time, flowers about 1.25-1.5" across. Plant is now ~35" tall including the mount and has done very well cool and wet in good light. Note positioning of flowers in full plant pic. The only other pics of this 'type' or 'species' I have seen was the one the vendor used to advertise the plant which showed a complately light pink tongue (the only reason I liked it); otherwise identical flower.
