    If you found it in a flower shop it is most likely a hybrid. Is it supposed to be a pure species?

    It's obviously a yellow "dancing lady" oncidium, such as varicosum, but you'll need to evaluate the lip structure details to know for sure. I'd start by comparing with photos at orchidspecies.com.

    Another resource would be Ron Parson's Flickr pages. Here is the link for Oncidium where you can see lots of pictures at once. Orchidspecies.com (ISOPE) would require that you click a lot of names to see each picture.
