Thanks for the input.
The miltassia does not look peloric though, right?
Of all orchids that would catch my eye, it turns out to be a mutant lol.
It is still lovely nonetheless.
I will wait for the next season too, to find out if this mutation is only for the current blooms or if it is permanently peloric.
Even if this orchid reverts to normal blooms, it would either be a Charles M. Fitch or 'Izumi' variant - which would be great too
It would be cool if it was permanent though, I never had a peloric orchid before that had good symmetry.
*I had a peloric phal before but only the left petal was peloric and the right petal was normal. It looked really wierd.
It looks like the actual name is Miltassia Charles M. Fitch 'Hilo Triple Lip'
This bugger is so obscure it was hard to find on the internet and I found only two pictures. Both were exactly identical to this flower though.
So perhaps I can now make an ID tag for this orchid:
[Possibly: Mtssa Charles M. Fitch 'Hilo Triple Lip']
I will just use that until it is proven otherwise
