This plant does not match the description of C. sanderae or C. parishii. This flower does not match the lip shape or pattern of the previously awarded C. sanderae. C. parishii comes from a section of the genus with indeterminate pseudobulbs that flower repeatedly from the leaf axils walking up the growth for several years.

There exists significant historical confusion in this section and this may be a natural or man-made hybrid possibly involving sanderae, eburnea and/or insigne.
