Year
1914
ORIGIN: Found in Brazil.

DESCRIPTION: Found in Brazil and said by Campacci to be a Synonym of E. oncidioides but many feel that it is not. I have it separate here. To quote Rick Cirino This plant was brought back from Brazil by Jack Fowlie, by the way of Verboonen. This plant matches the type of Encyclia cardimii, according to Marv Ragan, Dave Hunt, and myself. This plant is in no way a match for Encyclia oncidiodes. If the Brazilians looked at the type, they would not have made this mistake. The orchid has narrowly ovoid pseudobulbs carrying 3 apical, erect, coriaceous, obtuse leaves that blooms on a terminal, racemose, erect, 6 [15 cm] long, to 4 flowered inflorescence.

FLOWER SIZE: 1.4 inches [3.5 cm] -- information provided by Jay Pfahl, author of the Internet Orchid Species Encyclopedia (IOSPE).
