Please help identify this light socket/base

I've poured over charts of socket/base types and simply can't identify what type of bulb I need for this light! It's an exterior light on the wall of my house overlooking a deck. I can't find any information on the fixture itself (no brand name, model number, etc.) The fixture looks fairly new, only a few years old I would guess, but there was no bulb in it when I opened it up. A twin tube bulb fits, physically, into the light, but I can't find any bulb that snaps/attaches properly into the base/socket.

Please help me identify this socket!




EDIT: I should note, I'm in New York and I have every reason to believe this is a US made (err.. well china made...) light fixture, but I can't promise that.

The bulb would look like this but at the wattage your fixture is rated for.

Toolmon got it. It's for a 4-pin push-in CFL.

I can't find any information on the fixture itself (no brand name, model number, etc.)
Kill the power, pull the fixture and look on the back.

I am pretty sure it is 26W PLC 4Pin lamps, as per your socket picture, it is obvious a G24q-3 socket, there is a position limit at right side of pins at each side. For your reference, you can find the suitable lamps from this link *************
