Trichocentrum splendidum x lanceanum

This is a discussion on Trichocentrum splendidum x lanceanum within the Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, & Intergenerics IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; I have been puzzled by this pic since I first saw it - the name ...

    I have been puzzled by this pic since I first saw it - the name Trichocentrum was throwing me a bit- its not the most familar genus and when I see what appears to be Vanda like leaves ( or maybe Aerides lawrenciae for example) I got confused with some of the Vandaceous genera I'm not too familar with like Thrixspermum. But as soon as I started to check it out I realise that the two parents are both what used to be called Oncidiums before the DNA fuelled renaming excercises - one in fact is still ( or back to ) an Oncidium, and the other is now another unknown ( to me) genus - Lophiaris.
    Clearly the leaves we can see are nothing to do with this plant (!) which actually looks like an Oncidium , apart from having rather small bulbs - or should do !
    I wonder Angela if you can take a pic of it against a plain background so that we can see the plant too ? It is such a lovely thing, I'm sure I shall not be the only one scratching his/her head and wondering where might be a source for plants .

    I will take a Pic. later in the evening. Right now it is scorching hot out there.
    In the meantime let me tell the story of that plant. Bought from Jamaica, tagged Onc. Splendidum. At its first flowering I took it to our Soc. Monthly show table where I was informed that it was Not Onc. Splendidum. I did some research and I still believed that the tag was correct. The Barbados Orch. Soc. 2011 Show is AOS judged. I took the plant to the show but did not enter it for judging, but asked the judges their opinion on what it was. The answer was that with the reclassification it is now in the Trichocentrum group and the name was Trich. Splendidum x Lanceanum. I have checked it out and I am in agreement with them.
    Until I get the Pic. for you I should tell you that the plant is "mule eared", the vanda-like leaves you see in the original photo are from other Vanda Plants hanging in the greenhouse.

    If you want to be further confused, Geoff, there is also a hybrid Onc. Splendidum which used to be an Ondontoglossum Splendidum. For our purposes, the RHS still recognizes Trichocentrum.
    I knew this had been registered; it is Doctor Schragen.

    We oldies used to refer to them as mule-earred oncidiums, Geoff. Ring a bell?

    Yes, thank you Angela - and others. Onc splendidum ( the species) and the other mule- ears I know. Not very well, I guess they like more heat and light than is normal in an English summer. To my dim old eyes it appeared that the spike was coming from a Vandaceous plant, at first sight- which is what started me off on this interesting wild goose chase.
