    Agreed, the dark color makes this a winner.

    Beautiful Cattleya-- just a guess but it looks like a Thwaitesara Elaine Taylor. Whatever it is it is impressive!

    I do not know what the code number could be unless it is a reference to the vendors catalog. To be more specific your orchid looks like a Thw. Elaine Taylor 'Krull Smith' FCC/AOS. It could also be listed under Rhyncattleanthe Elaine Taylor. The genus classification for orchids changes so often that I stay befuddled!
