    Default New Orchid, would like help with ID

    I sure like this orchid! The color on the lower picture is the most accurate as to what color it is. The tag only says "Oncidium", but I'm sure it's a hybrid. I've gotten a couple of ideas from forum members already, so, with better pictures I'm hoping to nail it down. I am aware that it's hard to be 100% sure with the number of hybrids that look very similar out there. Thanks for looking!

    I keep saying I don't have room for more orchids, but I asked my husband and he said, "I like orchids!" and "Go ahead and get it.". How could I say no? I love the rich colors too, the red is rather bricky looking and the yellow on the orange side. So cheerful, so pretty and different. I'm a fan of the Oncidium alliance for sure, I keep getting more of them.

    I don't know but it has p-bulbs like a Miltassia and thos are large flowers, and a looong lip. They have thrown so much into the Oncidium pot, i suspect they will reshuffle, again. Very pretty.

    BD thought it might be a Odontocidium Catatante, as he grows them. It does seem very similar to one he had pictured.

    Actually, I believe I identified this as Oncidopsis [Oip.] (syn. Burrageara or Burr.) Stefan Isler

    Oh yah, sorry BD and thanks for reiterating your ID. The images look exactly like my flower, unlike the other choice, which had some small differences. Yay! It's such a pretty thing.
