Ok I’ll bite... what is xdolosa ‘Pendentive’? If you’re saying Cattleya walkeriana ‘Pendentive’ AM/AOS is xdolosa do you have any substantive proof... something that’s conclusive?

I knew someone would comment on the xdolosa.

I was watching a youtube video of Stephen Van Kampen-Lewis Show & Tell - Cattleya walkeriana, nobilior, Magairlin - YouTube at 7:31. Maybe it is a walkeriana or a hybrid. I really don't know! I also looked at the Cattleya walkeriana var alba "Pendentive" AM/AOS on Orchidweb but it looks a bit different than my flower.

I found this enlightening. After reading this I checked the AOS Awards list for Cattleya walkeriana and, unless I’m reading it wrong, ‘Pendentive’ as well as the awarded offspring I know of are still listed as walkeriana. Also I believe the FCC award for ‘Orchidglade’ from 1965 is still there too.
Here’s the link:
