Description:This page from The Orchidaceae of Mexico and Guatemala by James Bateman describes epidendrum acrochilum var. roseum, also known as Broad-Lipped Epidendrum.

The author comments that "it is one of the most attractive of Epidendra, even in the comparatively feeble state in which it is usually met with in out stoves; but when seen in all its native luxuriance, it must be, indeed, magnificent!"
