all the sites seem to show it as Blc but the tag says Rlc....probably an error

this one is a beaut.

scent is light and not too strong, like a gardenia from far away

Virtually all BLCs are based on what was then Brassavola digbyana. When that became a Rhyncholaelia, the B changed to Rl.

Virtually all LCs (and thus the L in BLCs) were based on Laelia purpurata (sometimes Laelia tenebrosa or one of the other Brazilian Laelias). When they were changed to Cattleyas, the L dropped out.

Now we are left with Rlc, where:
Rhynchlaelio refers to the digbyana ancestor
and Cattleya covers all the rest.

The unfurling one looks like it's folding its hands over its head to protect from hail.
