    The parents are registered:

    Cattleya Little Lemon Drops

    Guaritonia (syn. Cattleytonia) Why Not

    Apparently, the hybrid of this two is not registered yet. You can also check in RHS database online (free) or use OrchidWiz software (need to buy this). Only time will tell how the flower looks like. But my guess the colour could be either yellow, orange or red.

    If no one has a picture at least you will be able to post one when it blooms for you!

    Thanks for trying, I found pics of the parents too and was not that impressed, but hopefully when it blooms it will be more interesting than the parents

    This cross combines 4 species (C. forbesii x C. briegeri) x (Gur. aurantiaca x Bro. sanguinea). If you can find pictures of Cattleytonia (Laeliocatonia) Flying Colors or Guaricattonia (Laeliocatonia) Seagulls Sunset, this should be similar - yellow to orange base color, probably red in the lip, and red or pink blush on petals, or tending toward solid orange or peach. The C. forbesii grandparent will probably dominate for shape (somewhat fuller and frillier than that) and could promote more muted or muddy colors, but I think the more colorful species will swamp it out.
