Bletilla Striata, Ochracea Or Formosana

The flower on the 'Bletilla Striata' opened but I am not so sure it is actually striata at all. The yellow and markings on the lip point more in the direction of a pink form of Bletilla Ochracea or Bletilla Formosana. It might be a hybrid but I can't find any striatas online that have yellow in them at all. If anyone knows for sure drop a line in the comments. I think the flower matches the formosana the best but the height and leaves don't look like the photo's of formosana I can find online.

it's Bletilla 'Brigantes', a hybrid between B. striata and B. ochracea
