Default Is there anything else that looks like Golden Peoker?

Hi, It's Gwen, once again trying to ID a phal. While I understand it's not right to call a NoID hyrbid by a name which might bot belong to it, I have a question about Golden Peoker.

My mom dropped off an orchid on my front porch last week with no ID stick and no note from her. (I thought orchids were magically appearing!) Anyway, I just bought an orchid book the other day and it has a picture of Golden Peoker 'BL' and the one my mom dropped off looks exaclty like it. Now, this is a really distinctive looking orchid, and I think it's a pretty new hybrid to hit the orchid scene. So, I'm wondering if anyone knows of another variety that is NOT Golden Peoker which has the same distinctive purple blotches. If there isn't anything else that looks like Golden Peoker, I think I can safely assume that's what it is.

Here is a picture of my NoID:

I think there are others that look similar to that. I have a Taiwan Glory that is spotted like that. Also, Hsin Golden Prince as similar markings....
Not really sure, though. Mine are not in bloom at the moment, and I am going by my photos which isn't that clear.
Yours is a very beautiful Phal.
Wish someone would leave off orchids on my porch.
Lucky you! kiki

Thanks, good to know. I did a little more research and it looks like there are a bunch of varieties that have been bred from golden peoker and they can look really different. I *think* all of the blotchy ones are all related pretty closely though and have some kind of cross with Golden Peoker. So it would be wrong to ID my orchid that way but I'm fairly certain it has some G.P genes in it somewhere.

There is an excellent article on 'harlequin' phalaenopsis at Bedford Orchids Scroll down to Section VII News and Views, B. 2

There are 6 awards to Golden Peoker, including a JC and an AM to 'Cat's Paw Magician'. The JC was awarded to recognize the "unusual phenomenon of two totally and exquisitely distinct sets of flowers on separate inflorescences on the same plant; both inflorescences reflect flowers with the familiar Golden Peoker patterns but are so drastically different as to appear to be two separate plants; one inflorescence mirrors the flowers of the 'Everspring' clone and one mimics the 'BL' clone, both blooming on the same plant; plant is from a seedling population, not a clone or meristem."

Enjoy your 'harlequin' phal. BTW, tell Mom she can leave orchids at my door anytime.

As you may know, it isn't very easy to ID hybreds without extensive exposure to what all goes into making the hybred....just my Having said that and probably get all kinds of comments, I love the harlequin type of phal. As you can see, they start to all look so similar. The 3rd pic is a NOID I got at my local Costco last year. It is a miniture; small flowers and compact leaf growth...works great in an otherwise overcrowed GH! I have posted 3 harleuins of mine and the last 2 are "wana-be's" and are actually variations of Phal Leopard Prince but have a harlequish look...and, maybe, in this specific cross there is some harlequin hybred that was used....

I can comment on hybrid identification - I just did a little research on the parentage and went back a few generations on a hybrid phal and was blown away at the complexity of the it's background .. I'm with you .. BikerDoc
