    This rather clunky new name is caused by the reclassification of what was known as Cattleya aurantiaca into a new genus, Guarianthe. All Cattleya Alliance plants with this lineage (Cattleya X Guarianthe X Sophronitis) are now Guarisophleya. One could be forgiven for thinking the taxonomists are doing this just to mess with our minds!

    At any rate, whatever you wish to call it, it's a great bloom!
