    What's the flower size?
    If it's a C. Bonanza offspring or C. Bonanza it self the size should be around 15.0 cm.
    A C. Cariad Mini Quinee doesn't get bigger than 10.0 cm

    Your flower looks very similar to C. Bonanza. In my opinion it's not the same.

    Does look like a C. Bonanza, but not the yellow spot pattern on the lip. Perhaps a Bonanza hybrid. I know this one is a bit less floofy, but you might want to keep the name Blc. Lucky strike at the back of your head. Will look for more catts.

    Could it be a Pamela Finney hybrid?

    Pretty cattleya orchid, but hard to accurately guess the name.
