Unknown Orchid  
My Mom grows Orchids and came across the one in the picture and can not identify it.   Any Ideas?

Regards,
Jon

Answer
It appears to be a cross between an Oncidium and an Odontoglossum. If so, it is an Odontocidium. However, since so many odontocidiums look alike, my guess would be no better than yours.  I'm sure I've seen similar flowers at shows but don't remember the names.
