Need HELP to replace wireless Microphone

Some time ago I purchased this Audio-Technica wireless system:
Audio technica (Greater China) Ltd.

Only used it once to date (Canon XH-A1 cam) to record a speaker's presentation, but now that I need it again it seems I've lost the mic it came with. I did find a pic of this mic on another site:

But now that I'm looking for a replacement, I'm lost with all the different types, tech specs, and prices ranging to choose from with prices under to well over a hundred bucks. I'd really appreciate some advice on what to look for in a replacement mic. Typical usage will be for interview type work and possibly wedding. Willing to spend $$$ if the advantages of a better mic are felt to be worth it.

This is the best mic for the Pro88:
Audio-Technica | MT830mW Omni-Directional Condenser | MT830MW

This is a very good quality mic and the version linked above has the connector for the Pro88 system.

The mic you have in your picture is probably this one:

This mic is directional and not very good quality.

The first mic above (the omni shaped like a Tram) is worth the extra money. It sounds as good as some much higher priced mics.

Audio-Technica | AT829mW Cardioid Condenser Lavalier | AT829MW

This mic is directional and not very good quality.

Great-- exactly the kind of advice/link I needed. I had looked at that model which looked like it would work well, but good to know that it will inded work w/ the setup I have.

Thank you very much for the iinput. This is on the top of my list for the mic I'll purchase this week.
