Hi all,

@Fleur569 has been trying to identify the orchid in this photo of hers:


I know it's part of the Oncidium Alliance and probably a Brassia (or mostly Brassia), but beyond that I don't recognise it. Is anyone else able to help with an ID?

Thanks.

After a bit of digging, I'm now wondering if it's this:



Or perhaps another clone in the same grex?

I agree, I think that you have found the grex and it may in fact be just a different clone Joshua.
I have seen this several times in shows recently and the lip is pretty similar each and every time. It is the variety in the length and twist of the sepals and petals. They throw up multi-budded inflorescences and then they get picked up and looked at AND if they are not placed back down with the same orientation to the bright light, those segments start to twist. But through all of that you have that yellowish lip with the bright red markings!!

I just looked on the Wiz, I'm 99.95% sure that that is a Gilded Tower! Great ID there!
