Default Clowesia dodsoniana, Clowesia russelliana & Clowesia thylaciochila (Question!)

Does anyone here has information regarding the differences between these 3 related species: Clowesia dodsoniana, Clowesia russelliana & Clowesia thylaciochila? I mean differences that would help to identify them correctly, if you have the plant on your hand..

I have no experience with the 3 species, and in pictures they look very similar to each other, sometimes looking like being the same (or the photos being mislabelled)...

Thanks in advance!!

Hi, in the meantime I have retrieved the following information in a Latin-American forum:

dodsoniana: lip very open and wide (in comparison to the othe species), and longer than in the two other species
russelliana and thylaciochila: Lip pretty closed, almost like a bag, however the tip of the lip in russelliana is reflexed like the lip of Clowesia warscewiczii.
There is a lot of variation in color, fragrance, distribution and blooming season in all species, so that these characters are not good for identification.
