    A Brazilian species that has been moved into out of Oncidium into Baptistonia and now back into Oncidium while I have been growing it. The mount it is on is about 8" long and the flowers are just under 1" wide. This is another clone that I posted some years ago. I'm never certain of my IDs so if anyone sees a problem, speak up.
