Hi, Are you still looking for orchid IDs?

The first is Mormodes. Probably species buccinator. This species comes in a lot of different color variations. It can smell sort of awful. It is pollinated by flies.

The second is an Epidendrum. There are a LOT of species of Epidendrum in Mexico. I dont know which species this is.

The third is a Cattleya (Guarianthe) aurantiaca. http://cattleya.wikidot.com/cattleya-aurantiaca
Nice color variant shown in your photo. These are pollinated by hummingbirds.

The fourth is an Oncidium, or "dancing Lady Orchid".

Your last orchid photo is another Mormodes.

I am visiting Zihuantenejo next month.
I would love to find some orchids to photograph and admire.

Thanks for the pleasure of seeing these photos!
