Pretty picture: Robiquetia cerina

The tag said Robiquetia cerinEa; it's actually Robiquetia cerina. Let's see the running total up on the board!

wrong tags: 5
incomplete tags: 1
missing tags: 2

I was initially puzzled as to why someone would bring an orchid whose flowers weren't even really open yet to the orchid show, but all the photos that come up with Google look more or less like this. A few of them have flowers that are slightly open, but not far enough for any real detail to be visible.

And apparently this is interesting? To some people?

Well, I like it.

I think those flowers might be in bloom. The blooms at the top are slightly open and the descriptions I saw said they hardly open. Different but attractive.
