    The first plant is a hybrid Dendrobium.

    The second is Rhynchostylis gigantea subsp. violacea.

    Yes there are natural hybrids in the wild. Your plant is a man-made hybrid.

    It is interesting that the picture in the Orchidbids page is easier to see, than the one here where you wanted your plant identified. The plant in the picture is Rhynchostylis retusa.
