Is this After Dark an un-named seedling? Or a mericlone?

DLE ---- this one is an un-named seedling. It came from Oceanview Orchids - in Tasmania. It made a fair journey up to North Queensland hehehe
What a great find to get this reddish color in a unique cultivar.

Could you take a few pics under different lighting to see the range?

I’m intrigued.

Also what is the natural spread or size of flowers?

Sure can DLE! I'll check on the natural span.

I'll upload pics taken not too long ago - of the same flowers under different lighting conditions. And also include pics from a different spike - but same plant - just from a different bulb.

Above: flowers in the front are the same as the ones in the original post.

Above : previous batch of flowers ----- but the spike jutting out to the right hand side is the spike associated with the flowers in the opening post.
