    It appears to be a hybrid with a species like Laelia splendida or Laelia superbiens (both formerly Schomburgkia) as a parent. The spike is too short and the flower not ruffled enough to make me think it is one of those or a similar species among the former Schomburgkia now Laelia group. But ancestry from something in that group seems very likely. There is possibly some ancestry from Guarianthe aurantiaca, maybe through Ctt. Chocolate Drop as was suggested. Since it doesn't appear to be a species, and it may not be a registered hybrid, and pictures of this type of hybrid are hard to find, finding a precise ID may be impossible. It is a distinctive flower though, so maybe someone will recognize it.

    Thank you everyone, especially PaphMadMan, great info. I know how difficult is to find missing names for hybrids. My only hope is that someone recognizes it. I got it from this guy that was selling a bunch of plants from his father-in-law who no longer was able to take care of them. I got a good deal for a bunch of plants. Honestly i did not expect this one to be so beautiful.

    Based on a web search, several hybrids that look matching are Schombocattleya Diamond Head, Dulatiaca and Cinnamon Crisp.
