Identification Help

orchidman1(9)August 31, 2009

I'm hoping someone can help in identifying this orchid. I bought it many years ago (lost tag) and this is the first blooming for me. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

It's something in the Cycnoches/Catasetum family.

I'd say Cycnoches warscewiczii.

Thank you so much for your help, you've narrowed it down for me.
I searched on the Cycnoches warscewiczii but didn't find a close match unless the flower is that different between the male and female, which I read can happen. I found a picture of Catasetum barbatum female that seems fairly close. What do you think?
See-http://www.unine.ch/jardin/orchis/catasetum/catasetum.html

I'll try and post a better picture of my orchid.
