I'd like that too. The one you mentioned is the reddest I've seen. Others describe hybrids but, the crosses vary. Let me know if you find something different.

Get a Burrageara / Oncidium Nelly Isler. Much easier to grow for most people, flowers several times a year, great fragrance.

I wasn't talking to you.

(That's also the punchline of a truly horrendous joke.)

Have yet to see any Zygo that I would say was red.
