    Unfortunately I don't. It was a plant that came with a collection that I was given 3 years ago. It did not come with a tag. I finally took pics of it, its always in flower. This year is its best.

    Interesting...other than size, doesn’t have a lot of similarity with cyanocentrum with regards to shape. Lip looks like it may have come from suphureum? I saw a hybrid in the past (I think from Mountain Orchids), but the shape was very similar to cyanocentrum...just darker.

    it might be cyanocentrum x vexillarius. The stripes on the buds seem typical from cyanocentrum ancestry. and the ovary looks very smooth, which ecludes violaceum, petiolatum, puniceum & pentapterum. might also be cyano x sulphureum, but it looks a bit too coloured for that.
    I've made the cyano x vexillarius (both red orange & pink purple forms) cross, but they are still in flasks. If they give this result, I'll be very happy :)

    Yes could very well not have cyanocentrum. suphureum also crossed my mind. Its hard to tell not knowing anything about it. If I get back in contact with the grower it came from, maybe he has some ideas and from where he got it from. One thing I know is its diffidently not a species haha.

    Would be interesting to see what your seedlings come out like! I do know the previous owner did his own flasking and hybrids as hobby. That's how I met him, I was buying his laminar flow hood. The next day he called me saying he was moving to South America and needed to get get rid of his plants. I got all his cool growers. This plant was small when I got it, I wonder if he did the hybrid himself. If I get in contact with him again I'll ask.

    Here is a photo of what I believe to be cyanocentrum x victoriae-reginae. I need to look up to confirm.

    Hi Mikhail, here is another one that Darrin Norton (Mountain Orchids) gave me a while back. I just noticed it was in bloom. It is nardoides x sulphureum.

    I have also a division of this nardoides x slphureum hybrid. While I'm not really fan of its flower color, I appreciate how easily it grows and blooms every year :)
