They are definitely both oncidium types.

The first one is probably a regular oncidium hybrid. It looks vaguely like one called Space Race or another called Hula Halau. That said, there are so many oncidium hybrids that look like that so there’s no way to get a definitive ID.

The second one is an oncidium intergeneric. It is something like a wilsonara, beallara, etc. The most similar looking one is Miltonidium Melissa Brianne. The ‘Shady Lady’ clone has a very strong resemblance.

Even so, there are also so many similar looking hybrids that it is probably too difficult to get an exact ID.

The amount of ID’ing that can be accomplished is likely only enough to know how to take care of them. With that said, you got them to bloom so it seems you’ve been taking good care of them already.

Not Space Race. Wrong form of bloom. I have Space Race, and that one's a whole lot nicer.

Odcdm Wildcat Rainbow maybe. How big are the flowers? That makes a big difference in ID. If the flowers are smaller, like 1", I'd say #1 could be Onc Volcano Queen 'Hula Halau'. Second one looks a lot like some of the Beallara varieties we've been going through. At least you have a good idea how to care for them for now!

Yes, the first one is almost certainly Oncostele Wildcat (used to be Colmanara Wildcat), but there are many different clones, so can't get any closer than that.

Not familiar with the 2nd one.
