Genuses in Oncidiinae Male

I think that generally with orchids, one of the things that will perpetually keep the taxonomists hopping,
and updating classification, is the ability of orchids to hybridize not only between species, but also genera. This is often done by man-made hybridization, but natural hybrids seem somewhat common; Natural intergeneric hybrids exist, but are less common..

In any case, the name doesn't make any difference with appreciating the plant.
