I know it's a type of Miltoniopsis or Miltonia(comon name), but the exact varietal name I'm not sure...Try this Site;

Yup, I'd say miltoniopsis too.
There's a lot of confusion surrounding miltonia/miltoniopsis. I've read that the two are different species, but other evidence seems to contradict this.
Oh well, an ID's an ID!

Orchids. Nothing makes sense in their taxonomy. I think I read about these plants while ago. If I remember correcly Miltoniopsis is a species and if you cross two Miltoniopsis orchids(two different species) you get Miltonia orchid. I don't know! Whole taxonomy of orchids is one unbelieveable conspiracy. :banging: Is there any picture sites like carnivorous plant photo finder but about orchids?

This is a complex Miltoniopsis hybrid whose name is almost impossible to track down.

Miltoniopsis is accepted today as a separate genus from Miltonia, since its inhabits the northern, Andean parts of south america and some places in central america and is geographically far away from the Genus Miltonia, which typically inhabits the east coastal mountains of Brazil.


This site is somewhat a CPphotofinder for Orchids. Its full of little errors but its a nice start point for the orchid hobbyists.
