    Default NoId Potinara

    Hello, I guess this is a Potinara, but I wonder if anyone could Id. it for me. Not that it matters much, but anyway.

    Potinara would be a combination of Brassavola, Cattleya, Laelia and Sophronitis, as those genera were formerly defined. I don't see any evidence here of Brassavola (or Rhyncholaelia) or Sophronitis influence. That doesn't mean they couldn't be there many generations back, but the only thing obvious here is Cattleya, both bifoliate and big monofoliate types, and maybe Laelia of the types now considered Cattleya. So C. or Lc. rather than Potinara, by appearance. Many many thousands of hybrids of that type of course, so I think a positive ID is unlikely.

    Thank you for your input Kirk, much appreciated. I'll try to find an ID among the thousands of Cattleya hybrids. Just for fun, the ID doesn't really matter.

    If you really want to do some searching...

    It has some resemblance to C. violacea, which could be superficial, but looking among the second or third generation progeny of that species would drastically narrow down the search. C. intermedia is almost certainly an ancestor too, but that doesn't narrow down the search. Among the big Catts it might be worth looking at C. lueddemanniana progeny. Find the source of those bright yellow patches.

    Thank you Kirk. I'll narrow down my search on these species you mention.
