Gorgeous! This little octopus has been on my wish list ever since I saw it in a book. It'll probably be the next one I acquire! How is it to grow? As I understand it they are great orchids, grow well, and not to high demand. Yours has great color and form! Thanks for posting the pics.
Orchid nomenclature has to be one of the most dynamically changing of all organisms! I have an encyclopedia of orchid genera that wasn't published too long ago but many names have changed already. Another aspect in the novelty and intrigue of orchids, I guess.
