Potinara Martha Clarke x Sophrocattleya Beaufort

This is an unregistered and unnamed hybrid of Potinara Martha Clarke and Sophrocattleya Beaufort, and, yes, I know that the names have changed but I can neither get used to or remember them.  Under the old system of names this would be a Potinara, a combination of four genera, Cattleya, Sophronitis, Laelia, and Brassavola, but beautiful by any name.  The plant is very small, heavily influenced by its Sophronitis background, 5-6 inches.  The flowers are small, also, 2 inches across, somewhat smaller than one would have expected from this cross.
