Phrag. caudatum? ('Siebenthal' x 'Guatemala Market')

I posed the question of if ('Siebenthal' x 'Guatemala Market') was caudatum or warscewiczianum a while ago, and here's the flower. I'm guessing it's warscewiczianum or a hybrid between the two. Sorry for the bad pics, new camera and very low light.

Great hybrid.

If you use your camera on a tripod, you should be able to take long exposures to compentate for the low light.
Thanks guys, there's a lot of options to choose from and I'm still learning. Now to buy a tripod and lighting setup.

I think I should have made this thread a poll.
Majestic Tresses (caudatum x wars.)

EDIT: figured out how to poll, vote away!

If I had to pick, I'd chose Majestic Tresses. The warscewiczianum influence seems undeniable.

disclaimer: I don't know what I'm talking about
the two species are rather similar, especially when you have a darker caudatum or a lighter-colored wars. I wonder if anyone has seen either of the parents--plant size might be one reliable indicator.
This cross was offered in the past as Phrag warscewiczianum (popowii). I don't see why it would be anything different these days. It has always been considered a unique variety of caudatum or a species in its own right. It is native to Guatemala and has darker flowers than caudatum with a more compact growth habit.
