    Encyclia [Euchile, Prosthechea] mariae was actually first described in 1937, by Oakes Ames, and published as Epidendrum mariae. Hoehne merely transferred it into Encyclia in 1952. I really think it and its sister species, E. citrina, are sufficiently different from the rest of Prosthechea to be kept separate, in Withner's genus Euchile. Otherwise, I think it best that it should be left in a broadly defined Encyclia-- as indeed seems to be the horticultural preference, since it is still almost always labeled Encyclia mariae.
