    I am sorry but the pictures are not Sophronitis purpurata at all. Sophronitis purpurata don't have inflorescence that long and the plant doesn't look at all like it. Laelia anceps has long inflorescence like the pictures. It definately has Laelia anceps it in. Sophronitis purpurata only bloom in the summer. Laelia anceps is blooming now. The flower shape looks like it has purpurata. It actually might be Sophrolaelia Edissa which is a cross of Laelia anceps and Sophronitis purpurata.
