Does the column area near pollen cap have two horns (the unique trait of luddies)?
Maybe Carmen? Yes, it has horns but flower is much bigger than regular luddis and the lip pattern reminds me to gigas...

Three flowers on a stem also seems unusual for a pure trianaei or lueddemanniana. Whatever it is, it’s beautiful, and hopefully very fragrant!

Can't say anything regarding its classification...but what I can say is, this is a really nice flower which I like a lot.

Dodidoki,
I’ve had quite a different experience with Max Strauß. The plants I’ve received have all been good and properly labelled.
They can be expensive, especially the divisions as opposed to the seedlings, but you get what you pay for.
I would get in touch with him and give him a chance to rectify the error.
