Catasetum Dentigrianum is an orchid hybrid originated by Toninho in 2012. It is a cross of Catasetum denticulatum x Catasetum tigrinum. It is considered a "primary hybrid" because it is a cross between two species.

Every once in a while, along comes cross so memorable that you want to re-make it as soon as possible. There's one challenge when breeding Catasetums with sexually dimorphic flowers: you need both male and female flowers to make a cross! I waited patiently for two years before female denticulatum flowers were produced, and I saved pollen from my best tigrinum for the occasion. These will be spectacular flowers on miniature plants blooming 2-3 times a season. ( - Fred Clarke, Sunset Valley Orchids)
