    Question Two unknown orchids from greenhouse

    Hi folks,

    I took these pics recently at a friend's greenhouse and he seems to have lost the tags for them. They seem more unique than your run of the mill NOID hybrid to me, but I'm afraid I don't recognize them either. Does anyone happen to know their names?

    Thanks!

    The 1st one seems to be Prosthechea (Euchile) mariae.
    The 2nd, in my opinion, is a little Epidendrum.

    Well, as luck would have, they both start with the letter E, so I didn't have to work through a whole alphabet's worth of species photos. Got lucky right at the beginning.

    I believe,

    No. 1 is Euchile mariae
    No. 2 is Epidendrum aff. diforme

    Oh, Eric, I see we must have been typing at the same time. Fortunately, it appears we agree!

    Good work on the orchid identifications, Eric! Thanks.

    Love the Euchile mariae especially.

    cheers,
