I was trying to add an orchid named after my grandfather and it is registered with ROS It is Lcn Clark Pitt. It is a hybrid done by Paul Phelps. Lc Margaret Brown X Ctt. Bactia 'Grape Wax" is the parents. Please let me know if is able to be added or not. I am sure there are better pictures.

I don't see any entries in the database for Laeliocatanthe orchids. Hopefully one of the moderators will create an entry so that you can add your lovely photo.

How cool to have a plant named after your grandfather! Lovey dubby

This appears to be one of the hybrid genera preceded by an "x." I've created an entry for XLaeliocatanthe 'Clark Pitt.'

Apparently x Laeliocatanthe is an invalid name. The reason cited in IPNI is "nom. inval. see Art. 34.1b ICBN (2000)" and Tropicos. "Nomenclature Reason: contrary to Art. 34.1b ICBN (2000)." Kew.

This page at the IOS notes syn. genus name Laeliocattleya.
IPNI, Tropicos, Kew.

I don't know Orchids so my question is; would adding x Laeliocattleya 'Clark Pitt' be appropriate?

PS Welcome!

Zuzu I cross posted.

Orchid names are such a challenge. I have a list (don't remember where I got it) but it shows:

Laeliocatanthe (Lcn.) is: Cattleya x Gurianthe x Laelia

Laeliocattleya (Lc.) is: Cattleya x Laelia

Here's the entry for Laeliocatanthe Clark Pitt at the IOS. Schombocattleya is a syn. accepted on IPNI but everything else is as you note Mindy and Lin. Since the ICRA (IOS) accepts the name, it seems safe to keep. I'd bet there's an interesting back story in there somewhere.

Green Grin! Zuzu.

So, will the genus Laeliocatanthe be added to the database or should Mindy upload her photo to the link zuzu supplied earlier (XLaeliocatanthe)?

Go ahead and add the photo to the linked entry. The entry name can be edited later if everyone agrees it should be Laeliocatanthe instead of XLaeliocatanthe.
