Zygosepalum(?) 'Rhein Blue'

Zygosepalum 'Rhein Blue' - Flower photo by Richard LindbergZygosepalum (Zspm) contains 12 species from northern South America. Now that the plant has bloomed, I think it is safe to say that this is not one of them.

Zygosepalum 'Rhein Blue' - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe tag says it is but the flower says Zygopetalum mackaii hybrid. I checked for an RHS listing and found none. The "Orchidboard" forum has a reference to a Zygopetalum Rhein Blue with a picture. It looks very similar.

As a final check I went to OrchidSpecies.com and looked at a picture of all the Zygosepalum species. I don't see any of them as parents to this flower. I am going to change the tag and the inventory listing.
