    Default Laelia? in bloom

    Here is another of my Noid orchids in bloom. The man who gave it to me said it was a "Laelia". I can't find that name in my orchid books and it looks like a cattleya to me based on its leaves and pseudobulbs. Does anyone know its name?

    Thanks,

    Anna

    It looks like a laelia to me
    Maybe it is Laelia milleri or a hybrid, but I am no expert with Laelia

    It is a laelia of some cross. I think it is beautiful too.
