Ted, I tried my crude method of plugging the name into a Google search. The best pic I came up with for "Black Bird" did not have as much of a white edge as your flowers. They weren't as dark a color either. Doesn't necessarily mean a thing of course, it's hard to photograph red and get the color to show right.
I don't think it's so crude. I tried the same thing and did not get to where you got. You're right about the reds. This 'chid is very dark, much darker than the photo. I think you're right. I'm going with "Black Butterfly02"
Nope! :) It was a "black" dpts that I got at a wholesale nursery in Half Moon Bay. In this thread (http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1245127/), MaypopLaurel said that there might be someone who could help to identify, but the first bud only opened a couple weeks ago so I was waiting to get a better pic.
