    Default Cattleya loddigesii/harrisoniana or ?

    One for a discussion to cause a headache.
    I've known this Catt' for decades. I read & hear that the name C. loddigesii v. Impassionata has been changed to C. harrisoniana v. Impassionata

    I have tonite found that a renowned orchid & plant person in the USA in a presentation to the Canadian Orchid Congress 2015, has described this plant as a "well known" composite of both loddigesii & harrisoniana.

    The cross of lodd' & harr' = C. hybrid b. natural hybrid OR

    C. Brazilian Midway. Reg' in 2002.

    And we all thought orchids were easy !!!!
