Orchid Identification

Hi, I have this beautiful orchid which flowers each year for me. I have been told that it is a Laelia Anceps x Traverian. Could anyone please verify that for me or let me know if it is something else.
Many thanks

It does appear to be a Laelia anceps hybrid, but Traverian doesn't seem to have any meaning in connection to orchids. It definitely isn't a species or registered hybrid name (or any part of a registered hybrid name), or an awarded cultivar as far as I can find. Since the Laelia anceps part appears to be correct there may be some meaning to Traverian, but maybe the spelling got mangled along the way.

Yes that makes sense, there is no record of that name but there is a name remotely possible but unlikely. It may be completely wrong or a serious misspelling.
