Laeliocattleya Trick or Treat in bloom

In bloom in Sonoma. Lc Trick or Treat is a very popular parent for new hybrids and I see it listed all the time. This is the first time I can remember seeing its flower and I love it!

This is a victim of the renaming wars. It is listed by the RHS as a Cattlianthe (Ctt), Cattleya x Guarianthe.

While I like to follow convention on species, I have a hard time with justifying hybrid renaming. It is very confusing.
