Vernacular names

Cattleya granulosa (the "granulose Cattleya") is a bifoliate Cattleya species of orchid. It is endemic to Brazil;[1] the type specimen was reported to come from Guatemala, but this is likely erroneous.[2] The diploid chromosome number of C. granulosa has been determined as 2n = 40.[3]
