    The (clonal) name was given by me, to distinguish from the better known clone Alpine, and also a third clone, which are all in my collection. Alpine is the better known one .
    "Ons" rather than "Onc" shows that it has what was once Odm. bictoniense - now Rhynchostele bictoniense - in its parentage.

    One shot here is the one I usually take with a card background - grey here, but after photography I put the plant on the dining room table after we had eaten, and then coming in from the garden late in the day, the sun was coming in through the window behind the plant and lighting it up , and I thought it too good to miss.

    Gorgeous! Very similar to Wilsonara Kolibri (or whatever used to be called Wilsonara).

    Hi!

    I bought an orchid a couple of months ago, here in Sweden, and the only thing i said on it was Cambria, which really doesn't tell me much since there are so many to choose from. I have been looking around on internet and in books and haven't been able to find out what it's name is. But your's is the most similar i've seen.

    Do you possibly know what this one is called?

    Greatful for an answer

    Cambria is an orchid growers nonsense name ! There is an orchid, just one (!) called Cambria on the RHS Register of Orchid Names, which is internationally agreed and accepted as the authority on this subject. But this is not it.
    Regrettably I cannot tell you its correct name. What I can tell you is that you have a hybrid Oncidium. Proibably it has Onc.alexandrae in its ancestry ( which was known for 150 years as Odontoglossum crispum) and also Onc noezlianum - which likewise is better known as Cochlioda noezliana. There are maybe 10,000 hybrids with that sort of background.
    A botanically correct label will have to be "Oncidium hybrid"
