The Cattleya loddigesii species type form is a concolor variety in other Cattleya species.
The color is light to medium pink on the petals and sepals. Some have a large number of small speckles, considered a variety named 'punctata'. Most have only few speckles or are totally without speckles, which is considered the species type form. The outside of the lip and the front lobe have the same color as the sepals and petals. The colors inside of the tube are light cream or pale yellow. The frontal lobe is small compared to other Cattleya species, and most look like a ruffled little girl's skirt.
