Description
Ok, here's a mess. I bought 6 Zygo hybrids from Holm Orchideen in Germany. 5 of the 6 are either Zygolum Louisendorf or its "grexes", or Zygolum Harlequin. A marvelous article in the AOS journal "Orchids, from December 2010 by Leon Glicenstein makes all the mess of these ones clear. But the 6th plant is the main one shown above, which Holm Orchideen simply tell me is called "Blue Angel". Is it a so-called grex of Zygolum Louisendorf? Or is it a different hybrid altogether? Any helpful suggestions out there??

I am also posting the other two, for reference and contrast in case this is any help...

That first one is a Zygonisia. I thought it might be Zygonisia Cynosure, but then found the Holm page for Zygonisia Rhein Blue Angel.

But then on this page it is described as Zygopetalum Rhein Blue Angel.

They sure seem inclined to keep folk guessing!
