Hello Richard welcome to the forum!

The example you gave is a species. The names (Super Yellow X Tall Boy) are the clonal names of the parent plants used in the breeding. Remember, species are always spelled with the lower case for example Paph lowii. Hybrids are always capitalized like Paph Julius.

Hope this helps you understand the terms.
