    Flowers are 6 x 6 cm natural spread - so not large. Maybe could be better on a better plant - this is a bit scruffy , with green leaves only on the latest two bulbs - so live roots ditto ( when the leaves fall, the corresponding roots are dead). But like all this group, in S/H for 1+ years, and I hope recovering , so there is always a bright future to look forward to. Here speaks the eternal optimist.

    To be quite honest, I am never 100% sure about the clone names on the Wild Cats ( Orchid Wiz has it as 2 separate words, and they seem to be hard to trip up on these questions ! ). But dealers - print their own labels, and are not too fussy ... I change them if I am sure, but I am not always sure. So if you think Bobcat, you may well be quite right. But I don't think its any big deal, either way.

    I have a similar cultivar, named 'Bobcat,' which is one of the many made by the Rod McClellan Co. years ago. I believe that this plant, Wildcat, is no longer considered an intergeneric, for all of its parents have, I believe, correctly been reclassified as members of the Oncidium genus. By-the-way, 'Redcat' is very similar to 'Bobcat.' Nice plant!
