We discuss evidence in favour of the Wolf-Rayet star #17-A from Massey et al. and Crowther et al. being the optical counterpart to the X-ray bright source IC10 X-1, on the basis of recent Chandra and HST/ACS imaging by Bauer & Brandt plus Gemini GMOS spectroscopy. Subject to confirmation of a short orbital period and line-profile variability, this early-type WN+cc system appears to be a counterpart to Cyg X-3 in the starburst galaxy IC10.
