    Nice flowers. Looks like Laelia purpurata won out. But this is actually considered Brasicattleya schilleriana. Because Cattleya schilleriana already exists as a species name, they use Brasilaelia purpurata as the species name in the cross instead of Laelia purpurata, even though it isn't a currently accepted name. They really made things confusing.

    Yeah, but after they decided Brazilian Laelias were actually Cattleyas, that left them with the dilemma of having a hybrid with the same name as species. That is why you get the ridiculous hybrid Brasicattleya Schilleriana using a genus that isn't even accepted for one of the parent plants. The AOS posted about it some years ago. It's all rather silly.

    Orchidwiz uses "Cattleya Schilleriana grex (1898) .. no better... OW also uses the registration date to distinguish other ambiguities caused by the reclassification of Brazillian Laelias. (most of the rest are hybrids... and it really messed up the calculation of ancestry until that date scheme was added to uniquely identify grexes.... )
