    Default Miltonia x bluntii

    Picked this up last year off my favorite auction table It was in bloom when I got it and I remember it having a very strong floral scent. This bloom just opened 2 days ago and no smell detected yet...but I'm waiting!

    Miltonia × bluntii is a natural hybrid cross between Miltonia clowesii x Miltonia spectabilis.

    Just looking at an online image search turns up a number of photos of this cross---some looking very different from this one, some looking different from the ones on your link, and I even found one that looks just like mine.

    Who knows? Maybe it is possible, being a natural hybrid, that there are a number of variations?
