Default ID of this cattleya

Hi,

I found this cattleya blooming in bali with mass head of flowers per spike. It looks very prolific & tends to grow multiple leads.

I think this is Cattleya Skinneri. Both flower are same taken in different day light.

Anyone can identify this cattleya?

Thanks in advance

It is certainly not Cattleya skinneri, but some complex hybrid whose identity it's impossible to determine. It has neither the distinctive flower form of C. skinneri, nor is the lip the right shape or color.
