Picked up a new Phal - identity?

Hi, was wondering if you could help me identify this new Phalaenopsis. Haven't quite seen one like this before and the tag was most unhelpful.

Garden Web has been very difficult to upload anything from Photobucket for me, so here is the link just in case the photo won't load.


Here is a link that might be useful:

You are just about asking the impossible. It is a "Harlequin" type where the spotting will vary from flower to flower.
I cannot find the exact number of Phalaenopsis registered in the Royal Horticultural Society Database but two partial grex name searches give.
Search for letter Z in name 1031 finds
Search for letter A in name 16739 finds.
If your orchid is raised from seed the numbers rise.
Nice orchid, i suppose the tag has something dumb on it such as Phalaenopsis Orchid.

Um, yup, that's exactly what the tag said.

That's a LOT of Phals to search through just to find a name. Maybe I should just name it myself! LOL

Yep sounds like a good idea to me. I named mine the Big Spotted Monster, I know not real original. gb
