    Maura, I am tending to agree with Amey. When I saw the photo yesterday I immediately thought Cattlianthe. I did some searching last night, I did find some that had the same form and lip but the colours were more yellow. (sorry I don't remember which websites)

    Just to show how much color can vary depend on the light it's seen under, I photographed the mystery aurantiaca/briegeri hybrid at noon today (the other photos were in the afternoon. Since I'm not at home, I don't have my lighting and background equipment and I'm working within the time confines of available light. Claude Monet knew all about this of course, and spent a lifetime illustrating the effect of light on color - often in very structured ways (See the Haystacks series, Rouen Cathedral Series, etc.)

    Anyway - I'm amazed at what a chameleon this orchid is - in this light it looks like a combination of mango and lemon. I'm hoping it might help solve the id mystery.

    The answer to the mystery plant is likely to be Blc. Rustic Spots which is Bl .Richard Mueller x C. Landate, and an extremely variable hybrid.

    What makes you say that? I'm really interested - I have taken this orchid from its original greenhouse in Florida, raised it out on the lanai at Marco Island for 8 weeks, and then drove it back to Atlanta, where it's currently resting happily on my deck. I'd be amazed if I could bloom it again the way it did in April - but one always hopes.

    It occurred to me that I had seen something on another orchid forum that looked enough like it to be a twin. Then I Googled the name. The good thing is that it looks like it could be one, and the bad thing is that it looks like it could be one. Bottom line: I don't think we'll ever know for sure unless someone steps up with some identification. Which is why I said 'likely' and not 'is'. I love it anyway.
