Separate names with a comma.

I don't know what is it. But I think it is a kind of Vanda
I don't think so, and it is reminiscent of something I am familiar with, but my mind cannot conjure it up at the moment.
My first thought is Tuberolabium or a closely related genus.
Great Ray... I hope you will recall what is it soon.
Tuberolabium Kelly? Likely... We have some tuberolabium around here. Perhaps this is one of their family members.
Here are some other pictures of the plant
I found it! It is a Pteroceras compressum punctatum
I think Kelly is on the right track, but I find no reference to the pteroceras species you mention.
I can find Pteroceras compressum (without the punctatum). Looks like you figured it out. Nice plant.
Hmmmm. I missed that one, but looking at orchidspecies.com, I see a white flower without spotting.
And I seen another with brown spots too.
KEW and IPNI both list Pteroceras compressum as a valid species. Neither of them show any published varietal names. So I think "punctatum" describes the spots, but is not a formal variety.
That's the explanation I found, that 'punctatum' explain the spots.
By the way, happy new year all...
