    I think this is what I posted:


    This beautiful zygo-type SEEMS, from research I've done, to be a hybrid - whether a species hybrid or not, I don't know - from a German nursery. That nursery identifies it only as "Zygopetalum 'Rhein Moonlight' Patented". I can't contact them directly because I'm not a wholesaler, so I've yet to nail this thing down. Research I've read says it hasn't appeared in the RHS Registry yet, but that may be out of date. I saw a thread on this very plant in this very forum, but it provided no more info than I have, so.... Watchin' the (orchid) detectives (again) .... Sorry, Elvis C. - couldn't help myself.
    The correct identification for this plant is Galeopetalum Giant 'Rhein Moonlight' AM/AOS (Zygopetalum Arther Elle x Galeottia grandiflora).

Please help me with what this all means.
    My flowers are an inch accross at the widest points. there are several of these small flowers to each spike.
    This cross was registered in 2010. Acacallis cyanea is Aganisia cyanea for registration purposes. Aganisia cyanea x Otostylis brachstalix is Otonisia Rhein Blue Baby. Not a Zygopetalum, but it is a relative.

    As I said, it's nice to have all those orchid detectives out there!

    Thanks for your help in the research. Forgive what mught be a silly question. What would be most appropiate to tag this plant ? Would Otonisia Rhein Blue Baby ( Aganisia cyanea X Otostylis brachstalix) be correct?
    Pardon my lack of knowledge (always ready to learn) I have never heard of some of these species.

    I would say that "Otonisia Rhein Blue Baby" is enough, you do not write the parents on any other hybrid out there.
    Though it would not hurt to inform judges about the parents... they may not have a clue about what a Otonisia is.
