    Smile Name this Orchid

    I could use some help with the ID of this Orchid. I am calling it Laelia Diane after the person that shared it with me and also after a number of searchs to find something similar.
    It appears to have a Laelia background and my friend has had the plant for a number of years.
    If anyone has an observation or a clue, I would appreciate hearing from you.

    Thanks.Name:  Laelia Diane05.jpg

    Thank you all for your input. This is a Cattlea and it has suprised me with a bloom in Dec. where it has only bloomed in June in the past. Maybe I started doing something right for a change. The way the petals ruffle give it a little more appeal and, I thought, may be an inherited characteristic from it's background.
    All observation are welcome.

    not sure which hybrid it is but I would guess it has Catt. intermedia var. orlata subvar. flamea in it's background

    Ron, Thanks for the GREAT lead. You may have hit the nail on the head.
    Now all I have to do is find the hybrid in the haystack!
    Good thing I am planning on living to be 100.
