    Carol, hi
    Some Italian forum says that:
    This hybrid was created in 1997 from the intersection between the Cattleya Chocolate Drop (C. guttata x C. aurantiaca) and the Laeliocattleya Royal Emperor.
    That's all I could find

    I thought I posted a thanks to Nathalie, but I don't see it - thanks!

    My parents had a Chocolate Drop in the '70's and I see the other parent is an old cross too. It's a lovely flower out of two old favorites. I'm still looking for a Chocolate Drop for myself again!

    Dear friends, thank you kindly for your nice comments.
    In fact I've realized that I'm a lousy photographer
    Cheers

    Don't be too tough on yourself. That picture isn't that bad.
