  1. Lepanthes rhynchion looks awfully similar, based on just superficial visual matching. Thoughts? Posted 8 days ago
    1. Hey it does look like a pretty good match! But the photo is so bad I'm just not sure it's enough to cinch the ID. In particular, I'm not seeing the pink tongue-like part of the labellum that appears on photos of L. rhynchion? Posted 8 days ago
      1. Yes, that's a good reason to be skeptical. The red outline is a good match, but the rest of the plant a bit doubtful. Posted 8 days ago
  2. Lepanthes rhynchion confirmed by expert. Posted 7 days ago
    1. Awesome! Posted 6 days ago
