Dear Sebastian,

Yep, the name seems not to exist. I wonder whether this fantasy trade name is a known suspect and has already been linked to the right biological species.

Re image, as far as I understand, the listserver does not permit attachments. Below is a link to the seller's page, which does contain a picture.
http://www.sborchid.com/plantdisplay.php?ocode=DRY00015
It looks like one of these yellow-red Dryadellas with spotted petals. I looked through Jay's Orchidspecies, and there are a number of similar looking species. I don't know how to distinguish species in 
Dryadella, i.e., which characters are species-specific, which ones show intraspecific variability. Color of petals, color of column, wings, spot pattern, etc. So difficult to make an ID from a single picture.

Thanks for helping out.

Best wishes

Daniel
