    I'm not entirely convinced that this is Taeniophyllum biocellatum and not Taeniophyllum obtusum or some other species. When I look at pictures of biocellatum, they all appear to have slightly more red lining the back of the labellum, but I just don't know enough about the species to say anything. Any ideas?

    Doesn't look like the Taeniophyllum biocellatum I grew years ago. The "biocellatum" was very obvious.

    So my doubt may be correct?! Thank you for the response! It looks significantly more similar to obtusum, but I'm not ever sure if that is correct either.
