Galveston, TX(Zone 9b)

Can anyone please help identify this orchid? If not the species, at least the genus? Thanks in advance.

The flower looks like a Cattleya as they attain a nice sized bloom, but could be one of the crosses like Brassolaeliocattleya (Blc),....orchids can be very promiscuous and get lots of help from breeders being so....grin
