Default Could it be possibly IDed?

I was sent a picture of a cymbidium, but not sure if it is just an unknown hybrid. May I have your view about it?

Without measurements and photos of the flowers, the chances of getting an accurate ID from a random person on the internet is unlikely.

To the best of my knowledge, these super small Chinese Cymbidiums tend to be species. Although they are used quite a bit in hybridization, I guess it's just more traditional to stick with line breeding for this style of growing (and size of plant).

Also to the best of my knowledge, the smallest species of commonly grown Chinese Cymbidium (especially in this style) is Cymbidium goeringii (which itself may actually be a species cluster, but I won't complicate the matter here).

Based on the fact that the plant in this photo appears to be multigrowth, I'm assuming it is mature and blooming sized. I'm also guestimating on its size, but the grain of that sphagnum moss makes me think this is a very small (for a Cymbidium) plant. There are many varieties of Cymbidium goeringii, some with grassy leaves, others with wider leaves along the lines of what's in the photo. Other than that, there are literally thousands of varieties of Cymbidium goeringii (and really this goes for almost all of the Chinese Cymbidium species), so identifying it further (again without measurements and photos of the flowers) is extremely unlikely.

So, short answer, I'm guessing it's Cymbidium goeringii, but it's just a guess. I don't think anybody unfamiliar with that specific plant or photo can accurately ID it from this photo alone.

Thank you very much
This is my friend's plant, and yez that's a dwarf form. It is quite commonly seen in HK now, but I haven't seen a blooming plant so I am very curious what it is

I agree with MrHappyRotter on the ID on this photo as a dwarf form of goeringii. Other than that, I cannot give you the varietal name, but I suspect the cognoscenti of the variegated and dwarf forms of goeringii may.
