    As I understand it, potinara has been folded into the new category of Rhyncholaeliocattleya.

    I have a 'Burana Beauty' too! I bought it at an orchid show last spring, so cute. I hope its also a reliable bloomer - I have new p-bulbs on it, but not mature enough to know if they will bloom yet. I'm hoping.

    Did they have to change its name? That makes it really confusing for us more-or-less noobs! And who came up with such unpronounceable names to start with! Darn them!!

    The recent spate of name changes are coming about because of DNA testing, not only can DNA testing show who your baby's daddy is, but it can also determine if orchids are related. Because of the rearrangement, most of the south american Laelias are put into Cattleya, along with Sophronitis. Some things that used to be Cattleya have been pulled out into Guarianthe. The names can get difficult when the genus names get combined because of crosses between genera.

    Still, an orchid is still an orchid, even if the name was changed to something unpronounceable.

    Orchid names make me almost wish I had taken Latin.
