    Purchased as Pleurothallis aculeata, however, the flowers do not match the description of IOSPE. Listed as successively single flowered, yellow, 3 purple striped dorsal sepal, purple lateral sepals, yellow petals and a black lip, I am not convinced of the identification of this species. Any suggestions?

    Hello Chris, I have this same plant, and had the same problem identifying it. I'll have to look in my notes to see what I came up with.
