Does the column area near pollen cap have two horns (the unique trait of luddies)?

Horns are usually lost in hybrids. Also some luddie flowers can get up to 16-19 cm NS at times.

How tall are pseudo bulbs?

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

I agree with the others. It’s a nice thing but looks like a hybrid, maybe a primary with lueddemanniana,

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.
