    It could very well be Barkeria spectabili x Epidendrum stamfordianum. I looked in Orchid wiz and the cross is not registered yet. Sorry. It is a beautiful orchid bloom. Welcome to OrchidTalk.

    cheers,

    Beautiful. Could very well be. The colour and form suggest spectabilis and the spots, stamfordianum.

    Very pretty - it sounds like you may at least be able to narrow down the possibilities for the ID - and this is the place to find experts on all kinds of orchids. Welcome!

    Yes, It could be a Bardendrum. Very cute.
    This one (thank you Bénédicte from Orchidees.fr) is B. spectabilis x Epi. criniferum :

    Thanks for the answers.
    Yes, I hope this is the place to ID this orchid.

    I have found B. spectabilis x Epi. criniferum on the internet, very cute too.

    I hope you bear with me, because I am not good at writing in English.

    WOW...The lip, the color, the everything....very nice, Ellen. Beautiful Epidendrum cross.......I am confused. I thought the abbreviation for Barkeria was "Bark." ....Brassavola is abbreviated with "B."

    In terms of standard horticultural abbreviations of orchid genera you are correct about Bark. and B.. However, in a botanical sense, once you have clearly established what genus you are referring to it is entirely appropriate to use a single letter abbreviation from that point on as long as it isn't ambiguous. Since this refers to a natural genus not a hybrid and no B genus other than Barkeria had been mentioned I think we can go either way.
