    The leaf looks like a Stelis.

    My first thought was also Stelis but I am not so sure. The petals and lip don’t look fleshy enough. However, I don’t have a better suggestion. I’ll keep looking.

    After looking around a bit I think it may be Stelis gelida, type species of Stelis subgenus Niphantha.

    The person from whom I want to buy this orchid designates it as Pleurotallis sp..
    But, I would like to know more precisely.

    On the left there are flowers of Stelis gelida, and on the right of my unknown orchid.
    You can compare them.
