    Default Help with ID with these intergenerics

    These 2 I bought last week. I was passing by the flower market bent on buying a Red cymb but instead I brought to these 2 home. I need some help with the ID especially with the first one, the second I think is a brassidium

    The first is probably an Oncostele (Oncidium x Rhynchostele) type hybrid, with enough of the Rhynchostele ancestry (probably bictoniensis) showing to be obvious. Rhynchostele used to be Odontoglossum. Somewhat similar to Oncostele Midnight Miracles.

    That's what I said...

    "Colmanara" Masai Red was originally registered as a hybrid of unknown parentage. How they decided it should be Colmanara without knowing the parents I don't know. Later it was determined to be the same cross as Oncostele (Odontoglossum) Midnight Miracles, registered 24 years earlier.

    I don't know what they are but they're both "knock-your-socks-off" gorgeous! Good luck with IDing them.
