    Eric the plant is bifoliate. Correction, there is a total of 9 buds. They were all crunched together, so was very hard to count. I have another sheath about to open in the next day or say. I would love to have an ID, as I believe this is a very old orchid.

    I can't say much about your orchid at this moment other than 9 flowers on one inflorescent narrows down the possible parents and it isn't a species.
    To determine if the flower count comes from a Cattleya or from a Guarianthe or from both we need to see an image of the whole plant which shows the pseudobulbs and the leafs.
    It is a very unusual flower in shape and color.

    What do you mean with old orchid? Old plant or old hybrid?

    Old plant. The gentleman's memory is not the best (he is about 85), but he said his wife had had it for many years. Not much to go on here, I'm afraid. Could you help Horst?

    I can help more if I get an image of the plant. See my reply from 6:33pm.

    The vegetative parts of your plant are almost identically to Guarianthe skinneri.
    Although the flower is too much different from a normal Gur. skinneri. specially the lip is totally different.
    I can't see the other parent of this hybrid in the flower or in the vegetative parts.
    Maybe somebody else can help with the other parents identity.
