    Xara,

    Do you know which C. Minerva is your plant?

    Registered are 3 plants with this name:
    C. Minerva (1896) = C. lawrenciana x C. perrinii
    C. Minerva (1899) = C. warscewiczii x C. tenebrosa
    C. Minerva (1903) = C. Latona x C. tenebrosa

    What's the size of the flower?
    Can you take a photo from a closer distance?

    Cattlianthe Minerva is G. bowringinana x C. loddigesii

    To be this hybrid the flowers seems to be too big.
    What's the size of the flower?

    I took a photo a little further away instead to maybe get an idea of the size. The flowers are approx 7 cm across. As a bonus ;-), you can see my Potinara Free Spirit that has just started to bloom, there are two more buds yet to open.

    Xara,
    This photo shows very clear that your pant is Cattlianthe Minerva (Guarianthe bowringiana x Cattleya loddigesii).
    The size of the flower matches both parents.
    The color comes from C. loddigesii.

    Your Rhyncattleanthe Free Spirit looks great. This lip is sensational.
