    well, I am not getting much help here, one from Paul, I know others must have these crosses in their collections.

    This next one is Blc Copper Queen which is a cross of Bl Richard Mueller x Toshie Aoki

    Unfortunately, no. But the fact that it fits my "mini" requirements and has survived some remarkable abuse makes up for that. [I once went home for Xmas break and was in such a hurry I left it with the pot COMPLETELY immersed in water. I was gone for 2 weeks and it not only didn't lose any roots, it bloomed really nicely for me the month after]

    I like this one ... has almost a species look to it.

    Does this one keep the pink? Looks like a relatively small plant.

    I don't know, Ron. I can't speak for anyone else, but I don't often see the Mueller crosses at shows or even in catelogs. In fact I can't remember the last time I saw another 'Super Spots'. Does seem strange since the form of the Mueller crosses is generally quite nice and the color change can be quite appealing too, IMO.

    Sorry, Ron, I hate to admit it, but I don't have any Richard Mueller crosses and therefore have no pictures to post. (I guess the closest thing I have to any of these is Little Stars x Maikai, but it's not in bloom right now anyway. )

    I am, however, enjoying all the pictures you've posted so far. The Blc. Haleahi Sunbow cross is a beauty.

    Little Stars x Maikai is a very nice cross also with star-shaped flowers. I originally bought a bunch of this seedling cross from a Hawaiian vendor and have used a few of them in trades. I still have a few of them left to bloom out for myself.
    I guess I haven't seen too many at shows either. I have a favorite vendor in Florida that I buy from when I go down there and there is another vendor with an online store that carries some. And a google search for Bl Richard Mueller X can be very helpful in locating a new cross for me.

    Earlier there was mention of Blc. Haiku Dawn. which is Blc Gonzelle X Bl Richard Mueller. It is a fairly new addition to my Bl Richard Mueller collection and have only bloomed it once so far. It reminds me of Copper Queen but with a more compact flower and vegetatively as well.

    It has been fun collecting around a theme. I have a few Richard Mueller crosses that I haven't bloomed yet and have those to look forward to this year. One of the fist Richard Mueller crosses in my collection was Blc Rustic Spots. This is a cross of C. Landate x Richard Mueller. It has a nice color change as well.

    Ron, what are you doing to us. I'm sure most of us are going out this weekend shopping for Richard Mueller crosses.
    Sorry, no help with pictures here. The only one I have is: Marriotta Golden Tang x (Brassophronitis Richard Mueller x Sophrocattleya Daffodil) and it hasn't bloomed yet. It has 3 new growths so hopefully by the end of the summer I'll have something to add to this spectacular display of Richard Mueller crosses.

    Richard, if you notice, I refuse to use the current name changes with Laelias. Sorry, I just can not accept some of these...There is no way I will ever call a Laelia purpurata, a Sophronitis purpurata. The same with the Rupicolous Laelias, they may need a new genus but not Sophronitis. My Golden Tang is remaining a Blc and not a Marriota

    I know what you mean Ron, it's really a pain they keep on changing the names around. I'm purely using the "new" names because I research the parentage of my plants on RHS to ensure I can provide them with as good as an environment as I can and the names they use there tend to sick and end up in my Excel Orchid Program.
    So I have a Blc Golden Tang x (Bl Richard Mueller x Lc. Daffodil). Sorry for any confusion.

    Another nice feature of these crosses is they bloom off of every new growth giving 2 or 3 times a year that you have blooms.

    Bl Yellow Bird is B. grandiflora crossed with Bl. Richard Mueller. It is very Brassavola-like in shape from being 3/4 Brassavola. It too starts out orange and the tepals change to yellow.
