    Default I could scream - (orchid name changes)

    and that isn't I scream or ice cream

    A member sent me a pm asking about a cross that they have purchased and they are trying to research it and having problems. Their tag reads: Blc Golden Tang x (bl Richard Mueller x sc Daffodil)

    This was my response:

    Sc Daffodil would not show in your research. It used to be Lc Daffodil and is now C. Daffodil

    As you know Golden Tang is a Bl Richard Muelller cross and the way your tag is written I assume Richard Mueller x Daffodil is not registered or the tag would not have been written that way.

    L. milleri is now C. milleri...life is getting too confusing with these changes, LOL It was Soph milleri a few months ago. and of course was a Lealia when Richard Mueller was first registered in 1965 and let's not forget when it was Hoffmannseggella milleri. So Richard Mueller is now officially Bc Richard Mueller.

    So now to Blc Golden Tang. Golden Tang was Blc Waikiki Gold x Bl Richard Mueller but of course that has changed as well ...it is now Rhyncholaeliocattleya Waikiki Gold x Bc Richard Mueller. So Golden Tang is now Rhynchobrassoleya Golden Tang..

    give me a break..how do I abbreviate this one. Years of getting all this nomenclature down and now I don't even know how to abbreviate any more. I can't even figure out how they got Rhynchobrassoleya out of Rhyncholaeliocattleya x Brassocattleya. Shouldn't it be Rhynchobrassolaeliocattleya??????

    It is so difficult to keep up with the changes. I knew more were coming but guess they have arrived....geeze!

    I still don't feel better...I do think I need a bowl of ice cream

    Oh Ron, I think you might need something stronger than ice-cream. WOW. What a mess. No wonder it is so confusing. I think I need some Ice Cream after reading about all of that! LOL

    At some time, the advisory committee of MIS-management to the RHS will have to be held accountable for this whole mess.

    After two big cups of strong black coffee I think I am still sleeping... I don't understand anything... I may come back and read it again after the third coffee... (...I was paying bills...that might be the reason?!)

    Margo...there has been nomenclature changes and that has caused name changes in the hybrids, so many labels are no longer accurate and trying to research them has become more difficult. Personally, I have not changed a thing. Bl Richard Mueller remains Bl Richard Mueller for me and not Bs nor Bc. Can you imagine if I went through my collection and made the changes when they took the rupicolous laelias and moved them to Sophronitis and now took them and moved them to Cattleya.

    I for one refused to accept that these and other Laelias that were moved belonged in the genus Sophronitis...I can accept the change to Cattleya. There was no way I believed purpurata was a Soph.
