    It will not help with the clonal name though.

    After some more research I think this hybrid is Rlc. Chialin Beauty 'Goldeneye'. If someone with Orchidwiz could corroborate it.

    Thank you so much !
    I certainly agree that my flower looks like 'Goldeneye'.
    With your information I did some more digging around and found a disscussion elsewhere which offered that parents for Chialin Beauty are Blc. Oconee x Maitland.
    Thanks for your help. If anyone has anything else to add I would like to hear.

    While I agree with you Angela that it is very frustrating, as it has happened to me numerous times, we have also to appreciate the fact that in these countries (Thailand and Taiwan) English is not widely used and orchids are named in their own language and during transliteration, with great effort, I might add, errors are bound to occur. It is often frustrating and sometimes funny when a word is transliterated from one language to another. I used to make fun of my friend who is Chinese educated who referred to the American presidents ( my transliteration of what they sound like in English ), I Send How for Eisenhower and Lau See Foot (which in my Chinese dialect sounds like 'Old Backside') for Roosevelt. He in turn would laugh at my translation of Lap Ngap as Waxed Duck, when it meant Autumn Preserved Duck. And it doesn't help when when the Thais pronounce the Romanised form 'ol' as [ 'on' - thus Bhumipol sounds like Bhumipon. This happened to me many years ago when I used to purchase some orchids from a Thai friend.All his tags were written in Thai. There was one plant in particular that interested me but had no flowers. When he read the tag it sounded like Prak Khee Cham-de. I can tell you it took me some time and a lot of description of the flowers from him to decipher that it was Ren Brookie Chandler. Imagine if I had written Ren Prakhee Chamde on the tag if I were Thai or Ren Pa Look Kee Chan Ler if a Chinese.

    BTW the Thais don't normally sound their "R" s. So if you have a V Somsri it would sound like Somsi. I have a cousin Udomsiri and is called Udomsi and her friend named Saksiri. So don't raise your eyebrows when she introduces herself and think that she is immodest.

    Actually Angela the parents you mention are the parents of Rlc. Chia Lin, whereas the parents of Rlc. Chialin Beauty are Rhyncholaeliocattleya Oconee and Cattleya Waianae Sunset. Here is the link
    The International Orchid Register / RHS Gardening
    I think the name tag you got was incomplete and that your plant is not Rlc. Chia Lin, but Rlc. Chialin Beauty. 'Goldenye' is clone of Chialin Beauty and not Chia Lin.
