Default Finally found one...maybe!

I have this weird thing about finding orchids with names of the people I love...found an Lc Secret Love 'Evelyn' for my MIL, got an Encyclia Cochleata 'John' for my husband...couldn't find anything with my name for the longest time. I found a site today that has a
Pecteilis Susannae (which I found is now known as a Habenaria). Actually, the problem is that they usually have it but it's sold out! They're checking to see what they can find for me. From what I can find, it is a terrestrial orchid and I think it likes warm temps and med light.
Does anybody know more about this particular type of orchid? I'd never heard of it before, but I'm sure there are thousands that would fit into that category

This is what it looks like:

Default Habeneria

I probably spelled it wrong, but I think the species is native to Mexico. Before Redlands I made a list of all the orchids that I wanted to find, and that was one of them. I didn't find it at the show; I agree it's beautiful and that's a neat idea to find orchids named after people. I bought a dendrobium that has something similar to my name (den. amethystoglossum 'Pauwela'), and I thought that was pretty cool.

Hi Paula...well, bad news - they can't come up with one. I've seen it on other sites but the prices are $45-$75.00 and this place had it for $15! They did supply me with the name and number of somebody here in FL that bought a bunch 2 years ago and may still have some. They also offered to help me get a hybrid registered under my name! I did order the Phal Bellina F4 from them though
Remember the Ren Tom Thumb that I got at Redlands for my driftwood project? That specific name is Ren Tom Thumb 'Pauwela'!...so I do have one named after another friend!
If I find the Pecteilis at a decent price, I'll email you with the info.
Hope to see you soon.

Found the Susannae at another site, has to be imported as part of a larger shipment so it won't be delivered for about a month or so. I'd rather wait a month than pay $75.00 for it, which is what the only other site I found is selling it for!

Paula,
I couldn't go on the computer for a while today,(some freak storm came through!) so I took the time to make a list of all my 'chids...I have THREE with the name 'Pauwela', including the Den Amethystoglossum, also from Redlands!
There's the den amethyst..., the Ren Tom Thumb 'Pauwela' and Blc Chia Lin 'Shin Shy' AM/AOS x Blc Purple Magic 'Pauwela Prince'!
It's taken me over a year to find one similar to my name and meanwhile, I've been collecting yours!
