    I want to say no...but I am unsure...I was so heady from whiffing a few others that I failed to put my nose to this one

    I was trying to guess the parentage, although I don't know a lot about Maxillarias , always found them difficult tob loom , then I tried Orchidwiz which said "never heard of it".
    I'll have to file it in the "unusual incognito orchids". Nice one though , always assuming that my worst fears are unfounded - i.e. one 2 inch flower on a 10 inch potful.

    I thought I had listed the parentage. it is pulla x striata
    I wonder if I spelled the hybrid name incorrectly

    I checked it out. You are phonetically correct, perhaps !

    It is Maxillaria Sangay.

    Goes to show that in this area, the software is not overly user-friendly - or maybe I am asking too much of a dumb digital thing.

    BTW There are five different ones illustrated in O'wiz - yours is absolutely typical, perhaps a shade darker in hue , and in the lightest one the stripes on the lip are just as dark as yours spo show up a little better. But if put up for judging in the AOS system the marks would be identical, I think.
