    Cymboglossum? Kinda like Cymbidium? It does kind of remind me of one.

    I agree with clint. The name looks like Cymbidium or cross between a Cymbidium with another.

    cymboglossum... hmm, I know nothing of latin, however going by other genera... if cymbidium was from the word cymba meaning boat, and glossum (ie odontoglossum = tooth tongue) is from glossa meaning tongue... then maybe the etymology of the name refers to the labellum being shape like a boat!

    hmm... think I'll finsih off the rest of this bottle of new zealand sauvignon blank
