Abstract: Let $ f(z) = e^{2\pi i \alpha }z + O(z^2), \alpha \in \mathbb{R}$, be a germ of a holomorphic diffeomorphism in $ \mathbb{C}$. For $ \alpha $ rational and $ f$ of infinite order, the space of conformal conjugacy classes of germs topologically conjugate to $ f$ is parametrized by the Ecalle-Voronin invariants (and in particular is infinite-dimensional). When $ \alpha $ is irrational and $ f$ is nonlinearizable it is not known whether $ f$ admits quasi-conformal deformations. We show that if $ f$ has a sequence of repelling periodic orbits converging to the fixed point, then $ f$ embeds into an infinite-dimensional family of quasi-conformally conjugate germs, no two of which are conformally conjugate.
