Brassavola (hybrid?)

Rhyncolaelia digbyana


Amazonia Exhibit, Mesker Park Zoo and Botanical Gardens, Evansville, IN, USA


I am uploading not only a photograph of the specimen but the tag beneath it detailing some information. This is some sort of hybrid orchid, although it would appear based on my limited research that this grouping has undergone reclassification. I am hoping the botany community can shed some light on this spotting. For now, I will classify it to the best of my abilities. (Please note that the Wikipedia reference goes to the Brassavola page, as a page for Rhyncolaelia digbyana does not exist on Wikipedia.)
