    Question NOID Epicattleya?

    Hi everyone! What a nice site, this is my first post.

    I have this guy, wondering if it's an epicattleya? Flowers are smallish, 1 to 1.5 in across, pleasant scent.

    A picture of the plant it'self will help i.d. the type or family it's in. But with any orchid lacking a tag, if it isn't a well known type you are kind of left guessing. And unless you become a "name" geek, it really won't matter. Most of us end up collecting the kind we find easiest to grow given our "growing conditions". Which ever kind it ends up being, you have a nice little one there. I don't ever remember seeing one like it. Very nice find!!
    Wish I could have been more help....

    The bloom rings a bell somewhere in my mind... the shape and lip especially. I'll work on it, but can't promise anything.

    Where's jmoney, Ron_NY and Hoa when we need them???

    Thanks everyone. Thhe shape of the petals (not the lip) and the coloration bears some resemblance to Anacheiliuum [Epidendrum] confusum and fragrans, making me wonder if one of those is in the pedigree.

    The scent is..um..orchid-like. Nice, sweet, & floral. Here's a photo of the entire plant:
