Noid no more: presenting the Wilsonara Pacific Perspective

     Within hours of me posting to the Identification subforum of the Orchid Board, a user 'WhiteRabbit' found a named match for my red oncidium.  My orchid, is very likely called Wilsonara Pacific Perspective.  The 'Wilsonara' genus is an intergenic of three orchid genera: cochlioda, odontoglossum, and oncidium.  While it is rare to be able to identify an intergenic orchid noid, the similarity between the blooms is so compelling, that I am convinced.  

Here are some more comparison pictures I made, joining my photos with similarly lit image search results:

So are you convinced?  I think I am.
