    true Brassia do have more elongated p-bulbs another option would be a Rhynchostele intergenric cross...that would explain the lip shape as well as the more rounded p-bulbs.

    I don't know what it is, but it is VERY nice!!! Excellent form and coloring. The tradition of the flower being elongated from Brassia is not there. Maybe the Brassia was a grandparent. Good luck on IDing it. I would love to know what it is. Definitely one of the best Miltassia types I've seen.

    No Miltonia in this. Brassostele (Odontobrassia) Peggy Mobley (Rhynchostele bictoniensis x Brassia verrucosa). Some have more red in the lip from the Rst. bictoniensis, but others have this distinctive lip enhancing the spots of Brs. verrucosa. The Rhychostele suggestion from Ron-NY made it easy to find.

    There is a lot of Rhychonstele bictoniensis ( used to call it Odontoglossum bictonense) in this cross. I concur with Kirk as to the possible YD of this orchid.

    Thanks for the help.
    Happy First of March!!! ( for those who keep this holiday). In my country the first day of March is very important in the folklore. Men (from little boys in kindergarden to the elderly) give the women small tokens of respect and affection (called a Martisor, the translation being little March) The most important aspect is that this small gifts, have a ribbon attached to it, spun from white and red thread. The tradition dates from pagan times, and this specifically colored ribbon, is to protect the owner from illness, bad spirits, and in general to bring luck. In older times, the country folk would tie this kind of ribbons on life stalk (horses, cows, sheep) so the animals will be healthy and prosper in the year to come (in the old calendar, the new year was on spring, so many traditions and songs for Christmas are about flowers, and rebirth af nature )
