Alembic Importer not accepting abc extension on Linux

Hi there,
We’ve recently built UE 4.14 (as well as 4.13) for Linux (Cent OS 7).

I’m trying to import alembic geometry into Unreal. The Alembic Importer plugin is loaded, but it says that it cannot support the file type of abc.

The same file loads on Windows, and it appears as if Unreal Engine isn’t even attempting to load the file on Linux because it is stopping on the extension type.

If I open the dropdown in the importer for file type, I don’t see Alembic (abc) listed on Linux but I do see it on WIndows.

I’m guessing it’s just not registering properly on Linux? Any help would be appreciated.
