formerly Epidenron brassavolae. Found in Mexico to Nicaragua and Costa Rica at altitudes of 900 to 2500 meters in wet pine, oak and evergreen forest on larger branches and tree trunks as a medium sized, warm to cool growing epiphyte with a faint fragrance.

Uri, how bright are you keeping yours. This doesn't take as bright light as most in this genus.

Here is the naming info for you. It appears that Kew still has it listed as Prosthechea. Taxonomists love taking these large genera and dividing them.

Encyclia brassavolae (Rchb. f.) Dressler 1961; Encyclium brassavolae [Rchb.f] Lindley ex Stein 1892; *Epidendrum brassavolae Rchb. f.1852; Hormidium brassavolae [Rchb.f] Brieger 1877; Prosthechea brassavolae (Rchb. f.) W. E. Higgins 1997; Pseudencyclia brassavolae (Rchb.f.) V.P.Castro & Chiron 2003; Panarica brassavolae [Rchb.f] Withner & Harding 2004
