    I don't know if such a list exists for all orchids or not, but a very easy and good place to start is wikipedia, here is a link to one such page about Cattleya alliance and the hybrids, scroll to the bottom to find a list of genera that can form hybrids with your genus and also short forms of the hybrid names, like what Yamadara stands for, or what parents do Potinara have etc etc.

    I also do my best to keep an updated list of all orchids (natural and hybrids) here in the forum under the heading: Orchid Genus Listing . The link can be found on the home page also. It is sorted by the alphabet so you can click on the letter of the genus name at the top of the page and go to that section. Also, I link to the AOS pronunciation where available so members can hear some of the names spoken aloud. Check it out. Let me know if you find any omissions or something in need of update. It is an ongoing effort.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Wow, I learned something new today... I didnt know that Phalaenopsis can be crossed with Vanda. And boy those genus names are a mouthful to pronounce.
