    I am new to the orchids so please up front forgive my ignorance, just trying to learn! :-) When I Googled the "Epc. Kyoguchi" I have a couple of questions. The flower does look somewhat the same in color & lip but the other petals are long and slender on the photo here but are more rounded and shorter on the pics I found thru Google, the same with the leaves, they look very long and slender here (hard to tell the 'thickness') but in Google they are shaped more like a leaf from Cattleya. More oblong, shorter and thicker. SO my question is, can two plants be so different visually but the same plant? Can these differences be caused by water, light, fertilizer etc? Thanks for the help!

    I agree with you Michael. I searched but I can't find.
    Beautiful bloom.

    Kyoguchi is C. aurantiaca x Epi. aromaticum and has a cattleya growth habit.
    The other cross (B. nodosa x Bc Star Ruby) has a larger flower.
    It's growth habit is typical for a B. nodosa and the flowers and the arrangement reminds me of Epi. stamfordianum but it may also have some Encyclia on it. Can't narrow it down any more, sorry. Perhaps some other member can follow this lead.

    Brassavola and Barkeria (as Barkeria obovata for the lip) ? But any hybrid between these 2 species is registered in RHS...

    Perhaps Encyvola (Bepi.) Gordon Vickers (Brassavola nodoas x Encyclia tampensis)?

    Based on the look of the plant and flower(form, size, color, flower count per spike), I agree one of the parents is Enc. tampensis, but I will put my money on Brassavola subulifolia for the other parent.

    It sure is a pretty hybrid and I hope you will find an ID for it.
