Catt questionable lineage

Bought this orchid yesterday. It was represented as being c. skinneri.

Research today leads me to believe that is not true.
1. Its not bifoliate
2. It has a cut lip

It is extremely fragrant.

It looks much more like c. warsceniczii to me.

Would be interested in others thoughts....george

No, not skinneri, I am going to say a hybrid. It may or may not be Cattleya Laurie Lynn Westenberger pictured here. There are definite similarities.
