    Default Degamoara??

    I did a google search and the only thing that I found similar to this is Dgmra Flying High because of the markings on the lips. Markings on the sepals are almost the same, color a dark red to dark brown. Petals are very large compared to the Dgmra Flying High and there are bright red markings at the BACK of petals and the lip! I find this odd, I have never seen an orchid with different markings at the back of its flowers. Size of the blooms is about 4.5 inches.

    I have posted this pic previously but it got lost during the server switch.

    Are you sure you reposted the right picture? A dgmra is an oncidium, not a paph.

    Are we talking about the same pic? I'm not seeing a Paph, but a yellow and brown intergeneric. I sure as hell hope attachments didn't get screwed up with the server changeover....

    Tanya, the markings on what I'm seeing look similar to Flying High but that's not it. Petals are much too broad and shaggy looking.

    Gilda,Lisa is right, this one is not a paph, but some kind of oncidium.
    Scotty, thanks for giving me the correct name.

    There are 3 blooms opened now, and heres the update. The 3rd bloom, 3rd pic is the kind that makes me frustrated. Its completely folded in half and it won't open up . The second pic is the back of one of the blooms. The petals were previously "locked" behind the lips, pried them loose but it looked like they wont spread out anymore . There are only five blooms, hope to have more next time.

    Could it be that what I got here is an unnamed oncidium intergenerics?
