    It's very small - that is a 2 inch popt ; the lip is about 1 cm across.
    I bought it from a Taiwanese dealer at Budapest a couple of days ago ( European Orchid Congress) - clearly labelled as "Ionumia caisine 'Fu-Cal' FCC/AOS and also CC/AOS.
    But Jay has not heard of Ionumia, neither can google find it.
    Of course the flowers have not improved after being in my suitcase for a couple of days, but good enough to be recognised, .
    I was told that it is a Taiwanese endemic - the dealer seemed to know what he was talking about and had some other good orchids which I also bought, but no trouble with the other names. No question of badly written handwriting either - it was a printed label.
    The plant looks like a miniature oncidium - of course it isn't - there are no oncidium species native to Asia - its an American genus/tribe - I just said it looks like to give an idea of the sort of very small bulb, leafage etc etc.
    So what is it ? Or what might it be ?
    Any suggestions, good folk ?

    It looks like an Ionopsis utricularioides to me, may be they hybridized it to a tolumnia, if that is even possible?

    I think Amey has it. Orchid Wiz lists: Ionumnia [Inm.] (syn. Ionocidium or Incdm.) Cuisine, which is a cross between Tol. Misty Pink & Ionopsis utricularioides

    Looks like a straight Ionopsis utricularioides to me. These can grow to to nice specimen plants with branching inflorescences. They have been hybridized with Tolumnias.

    It's lovely whatever the ID...I do like Ionopses. (Is that the correct way to write the plural?)
