    It does seem like a mutation/peloric? Miltassia Royal Robe looks like a decent match otherwise... weird.

    Semi peloric orchid perhaps? I have no idea otherwise.

    My guess would also be a mutation of Mtssa Royal Robes. Mine is in bloom now, and it looks a lot like it...only a weird version.

    its interesting cause ive been noticing alot of peloric orchid phals being sold at box stores. All these companies trying to get rid of bad genetic stock or something...but thats usually what happens i suppose......

    Definitely a Miltassia. Beyond that, any ID will be speculative. Lovely flower though
