The lip is ruffled, the petals relatively narrow and wavy. The author also says "Flowers of Lc. Charlesworthii I have seen resembled a miniature C. dowiana." The compact size also brings the identification into question. Withner states that cinnabarina has both leaves and pseudobulbs to 25 cm long(each).
    Micheal, Amey,
    Some time ago we made a cross with Rlc. Tsiku Luisita as the seed parent and C. Cinnabrosa as the pollen parent.
    All offspring has the extremely small column of C. cinnabarina and some of the plants have a similar lip shape than Amey's plant.
    In my opinion it could be C. Charlesworthii.
    At least C. cinnabarina is one of the parents.

    Thanks for your insight Horst. The nursery also maintains that this is the charlesworthii, also I found a pic. in Orchidwiz which is not very different from mine, so I am rather sure now that it is charlesworthii. Here is the pic from Orchidwiz.

    When you say the plant is compact, what is the length of the longest pseudobulb and longest leaf? I'd also be interested in the flower size.
