    I have seen the Miltassia. It is Miltassia Charles M. Fitch "Three Lips". It is a peloric "Izumi". This orchid was created by mericlone and a genetic hiccup caused it. The Zygopetalum is lovely but could be anything.

    I have been trying to stay away from NOIDs but these two just really stood out from the crowd.

    This first one appears to be an oncidium alliance type orchid.
    I cant quite figure it out. It looks like a brassia with floofy petals. And I have never seen a color pattern like this before.






    The second one is a Zygopetalum of some sort.
    The colors on this one is not as striking, but the clean lines and simple colors are also attractive in its own right.
    The flowers also have a slight scent of lavender.




    Any ideas on their ID would be appreciated.

    Wow! Thanks for the info.
    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.

    This particular clone is genetically peloric and will continue to bloom as such.

    Thanks again for the name clintdawley.
    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
