    Default I'm at a loss...and it has a TAG!

    I was very lucky at our local orchid society meeting and won a (this is a quote off the tag):
    Lem. Wroskinneri 'Mike' HCC-AOS

    I thought that with all that information I would easily be able to ID the plant, but I've had no luck whatsoever!

    Please help and thanks,

    Mateo

    I had my fiancee take a crack at the writing on the tag...
    I now this it is a Lemboglossum uroskinneri.
    I still don't have much information on this plant, and I've found many other 'uroskinneri' including a Ondontoglossum uroskinneri and Rhynchostele uroskinneri.
    The plant I have is about the size of a cymbidium and its previous spike was 5-6 feet long (so I was told). Any information you can add is appreciated!

    There has been a lot of confusion regarding plants of this genus. They were first placed as an Odontoglossum species, then later as a Lemboglossum species (part of the Odontoglossum alliance), then later as a Rhynchostele species (still part of the Odontoglossum/Oncidium alliance). Regardless of what it is called, once you call it Lemb. uroskinneri, people (or at least taxonomists like Pat (aka Mahon) and most of orchid growers) will know what it is.
    Cheers. Hoa.
