Help me read the tag of my new dehydrated friend

Got another $5 orchid, this one is labeled as an Oncidium on the barcode, but the tag does not reflect that. I cannot make out what the tag says sadly, though I probably could figure it out if I knew more about orchids. Which is where you come in.

W___ D___ Gold?

Not very dehydrated at all, in fact in pretty good condition. For $5, a bargain.

The Wils bit is short for Wilsonara. As for the rest, should be easy, but maybe the gold bit should be in quotes. Those other three letters are a mystery and whoever wrote the tag should be ashamed, but no doubt if asked they would say "Whats the problem" !
I've included the link to the RHS register of names and you can search on full or part names. But note if the gold bit should be in quotes that info will not be in the register,

Here is a link that might be useful: RHS Name searches

Thanks, as always!

I got this from the same place as my Latouria Den that you helped me with. They seem to always have a few on a steep sale (25-30 down to 5!) but they hide them really, really well and never in the same place LOL! Last time they were in a basket underneath a table, this time they were up against the wall on table under a shelf behind a bunch of Phals lol

Perhaps, maybe the grex name is just one word. Wilsonara Dangold

RE: Help me read the tag of my new dehydrated friend

RHS lists it as one word so that is what the tag should have but I see it listed as two words quite often. You can verify the name when it blooms.
