For some reason Blc. (Brassolailiocattleya) is not recognized as a genus. There are a huge number of varieties in this genus.

I don't know much about orchids (brain can't/won't wrap around it,) but found some info on Wiki:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

Brassolaeliocattleyas:
"in the horticultural trade, is the orchid nothogenus ( a genus denoting a hybrid or cross) for intergeneric hybrid greges containing at least one ancestor species from each of the three ancestral genera Brassavola R.Br, Cattleya Lindl. and Laelia Lindl., and from no other genera.
As the name was used in 1999, there were many greges which were among the most spectacular of cultivated orchids, being particularly valued for the large showy labellum. By 2009, the "Brassavola" parents most commonly used in producing Brassolaeliocattleyas had been moved into the genus Rhyncholaelia, and the "Laelia" parents most commonly used in producing Brassolaeliocattleyas had been moved into the genus Cattleya.[3] As a result, most of the greges that were classified as Brassolaeliocattleyas in 1999 are now classified in the nothogenus Rhyncholaeliocattleya, although others are now placed in several nothogenera." see list in link

Hi Ken,

That's odd. Brassolaeliocattleya was there. Perhaps it was automatically removed after I reassigned all the entries. I haven't found any yet that haven't been reclassified.

@eclayne or @robertduval14, would you be able to add a generic entry for Brassolaeliocattleya, please?

Thanks Evan.

Sue - because Brassolaeliocattleya is technically still an accepted genus and many people still refer to hybrids that have been reclassified by it, I put it in the "Also sold as" field. Means that people searching for them might still find them.
