Very nice! The lip looks like anceps (gouldiana has much more prominent sidelobes), but 7 flowers on a spike seems to make that unlikely. I could see this being something like Laelia Aphrodite (Lookalike x anceps), which is 75% anceps and 25% gouldiana. Where did you get it?
Actually, these are wild orchids. They grow in the oak woods of Mexico State at an altitude of between 1900-2450 ASL.
To my knowledge, they are pure, even though these hibridization could've happen in the wild.
Anceps, flowers in november, here they call it "dead day flower" because of a mexican celebration of the deads in that month.
The pictured orchid is flowering now.
Sending more pictures of different Laelia varieties.
I have both these Laelias, got them in Mexico, waiting for my speciosa to bloom. My Mexican Stanhopeas just finished blooming, very impressive.
Thank you. Here in Mexico we are about two months for de anceps to bloom in full splendor.
where are you in Mexico? I was 10 years in San Miguel de Allende, Gto.
I live in Mexico City but the pictures of this orchids are from a country house I have in Mexico State, close to Malinalco
