    The first is a Bealleara / Aliceara type. It is unlikely you can get a definite ID of the hybrid, there are too many similar.

    The second is a Dendrobium, probably a hybrid from section Spatulata.

    The third is most likely a select form of Cattleya loddigesii, though a hybrid with a lot of that species is also possible.

    Well we have found out what the first and third are. Number 2 is still a mystery but I am going to venture a guess and say it's maybe some type of weird Encyclia cross. The first plant is an Alcra. called smile Eri. Carol found that one first. She's a bad ass! The lavender one is Peloric cattleya loddegessii, ID'd by one of my Orchi-friends on FB

    For the second one, you might look into Schomburgkia or crosses. The flower shape is very similar, but I didn't see one with a similar color. (I saw a Schomburgkia exalta advertised in an email ad and thought of your mystery orchid). If you want to know where the ad is from, pm me.

    I'll say it again. The second one is a Dendrobium hybrid from section Spatulata, sometimes called Antelope Dendrobiums.

    I will definitely agree that you are much more expert than I am. And a simple search confirms it! Thanks for the correction, they are very cool.
