So embarrassed....
Default So embarrassed....

Former serious hobbyist here. And I've been out of the game so long I've lost the ability to name a lot of genus I should recognize! Out of 3 I could only remember the
B. nodosa


Here's the first I'm looking to identify:


Orchid #2 - Album on Imgur

Also I'm not sure the pics gonna post so I also linked the first one...
Yep, pic didn't display so I'm linking the second...

Orchid Belize - Album on Imgur

Thanks in advance y'all!

The first looks like an ionopsis, the second looks like a schomburkgia (myrmecophila)

Second one is definitely some type of Schomburgkia.

Default Thankful for help!!

The Ionopsis seems spot on...the Schomburkia I'm struggling with as I don't see any that resemble it when googling..... But I am in Belize so it's making sense...

So happy to be back in the orchid world even if I need a little refresher.

Schomburgkia’s have now been reclassified as Myrmecophila. However, a google search of both those names should bring up plenty results. Finding an exact match might be more difficult. Is this a wild orchid, as it would appear in nature, or a purchased plant?

Not quite... actually, most of the Schomburgkias got classified as Laelia (superbiens, moyobambae, splendida, lueddemannii, and a bunch of others). These have slender, solid pseudobulbs. The ones classified as Myrmecophila have more stout pseudobulbs that are hollow. (the pseudobulbs actually look superficially a lot like Den. speciosum). The most common of these in cultivation is Myrmecophila tibicinis. All of the (former) Schomburgkias have wavy petals and sepals. But the lip of the two groups is quite different. The lip in the photo definitely looks like Myrmecophila, so that is where OP should look to try to get a match.

Seen in home garden so assuming purchased but again, this is Belize, so wild collected is possible.
And I'll google the Myrmecophila.
Thanks!!

Wish I had photo'd the psuedobulbs. I should know better that it would have helped with ID. Looking forward to dipping my toes back in to orchid culture!
Thanks for y'alls help!!
