Hi Dave, I've had a look at your picture and I do believe it to be a S.M. orchid, the colours range from pink through to purple,they usually have more spots on the lower petal but the heart shape of the petal is distinct. With the reference books I have and looking through them to find yours I realise now that I have wrongly named my pic. so I have changed the title, thanks for that!!! Jacko
