    Looks like it could be a C. loddigesii hybrid, if not a variation of the species itself. Very pretty indeed!

    Does actually, only difference is the two petals-this one is 'perky' and yours is 'droopy' lol but then there has to be variation ae?

    I would take the advice of the expert.

    Jordan the first set of droopy flowers are from May when the temperatures in my greenhouse are 100+F for weeks on end, even I become droopy if I don't sit in my AC room LOL ! You can see the pics on the next page from July (temps. 75 to 85 F), here you can see some newly flowered perky flowers LOL

    It is possible to be Cattleya Janice Evans.

    But your plant may have problems.
    The leaves are too yellow:
    *Or your plant get too much sun.
    *Or the majority of the roots are rotten.

    Your flower shows color breaks. Spots, blotches and streaks on parts of the flower where your flower shouldn't have it.
    This is an indication of a virus infected plant.

    Check following link. You may find more symptoms of virus on your plant.

    Very true, virus was also a concern for me when I saw the picture. But sometimes specific cultural problems like too much light and heat can give rise to such spots, but one cannot rule out the possibility of a virus without testing the plant.
