    Default Phal violacea x Phal mitou belling - can this be right?

    Hi everyone,
    I bought this new novelty phal for myself, and the grower says it's a hybrid. Being a stickler to details, I googled the variety name and found no hits. Then I googled 'mitou belling' and nothing came up either!

    So my hunch was this variety was incorrectly named. And in actual fact the grower had (unconsciously) sold me a species - a phal violacea instead! I hope to confirm this with the experts here, particularly with those who specialised with phals. Can anyone help with the identification pls?
    Thanks

    A very lovely phal. You can see the very strong influence of violacea in this hybrid. There are scores of almost similar looking hybrids and and many are unnamed or have names that are not registered.

    HI Marcus. I believe you were simply a victim of misspelling: the pollen parent in that case is Mituo Bellina, making the hybrid with violacea, Phal. Meidarland River.

    Thank you raybark.
    I believe you're right with the misspelling. I'm certain every grower here gets frustrated when we are unable to get the names of our beloved orchids as a result of such problems.
