    Question Can you identify this cattleya beauty?

    This NOID Cattleya opened 2 days ago. At first I thought it might be a Mahina Yahiro Ulii, but I find the lip too dark and the fragrance different, lighter/not as intense. It measures about 5 inches in diameter. Any clues?

    Cheers, Michael

    Wow shes a beauty ! My guess would also have been Mahira, but as you mention the lip is darker, find out and let me know, for this beauty definitely deserves a wishlist spot.
