Lycaste occulta Oakeley, Orchid Digest 71: 203 2007. (syn: Lycaste occulta var. alba Oakeley);

N. South America to Ecuador as per WCSP;

Colombia; Ecuador; Guyana; Venezuela as per Catalogue of Life;

Orchids seen at the Conservatory in ABG during my visit in October, 2018. 

I think this a hybrid of Lycaste tricolor.

Thanks a lot …

I found one Lycaste oculata on the Column.
Can you check and validate?

Never heard such name before. Cant find either.

Thanks … Found this on the link…..

This name is not on the international database somehow.

Could the name be spelt as Lycaste occulta? 
I found this link of Atlanta Botanical Garden with names against all the pictures. 

Lycaste occulta, is indeed a name. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for validating.

So this is Lycaste occulta and not a hybrid of Lycaste tricolor.

Am I understanding correctly?

Yes not a hybrid.
