cakedaddy, I have been poking through all sorts of places and found that there is a Cattleya intermedia.
I'm wondering whether my plant is a hybrid between a Laelia and the C. intermedia, and the "Melba" reference is yet another Lc hybrid crossed in.
It's a puzzlement for sure, and will teach me to be more careful about plant tags in future.
I think I'm going to have to label it as a Laelia hybrid, and maybe add the joke label "Noidea inderterminata var dubii"
