Laelia Canariensis 'Golden Glow' HCC/AOS

Laelia Canariensis 'Golden Glow' HCC/AOSLaelia Canariensis 'Golden Glow' HCC/AOS - Plant photo by Richard LindbergAnother recent addition to my collection is this anceps hybrid. It has 5 pseudobulbs and is in spike.

Laelia Canariensis is a primary hybrid Laelia anceps x Laelia harpophylla. And of course, the RHS has renamed Laelia harpophylla to Cattleya harpophylla because all the South American Laelias are now considered to be Cattleyas.

Of all the results of the naming wars this change actually makes sense since it is impossible to tell the difference without counting pollinia.
