    Lovely! Looks like Brassocattleya Nakornpathome Silver but I'm not a Cattleya expert. I'm sure someone will give some feedback.

    Closest one I can find on the WWW is something called BC. Nakornpathome Silver but not exactly the same.

    There are several hybrids that are virtually impossible to tell apart, various combinations of C. bicolor with B. nodosa and/or another Brassavola, in various proportions. Simplest case is Bc. Binosa (C. bicolor x B. nodosa). Bc. Nakornpathome Silver (Bc. Binosa x B. nodosa) and Bc. Green Bird (Bc. Binosa x B. Little Stars) are a couple more, but not the only possibilities, and this might not even be a registered hybrid. Since they are all somewhat variable, just because a picture isn't an exact match doesn't mean it is a different cross. I would think Bc. Binosa might be more likely because the next generation hybrids tend to be more nodosa-spidery, with thinner tepals that flop or curl a bit. It is almost certainly something in that Bc. Binosa family, but a definite ID will not be possible if you have no other information from a label or the supplier.
