    Certainly not trinervis ... Looks more like C. lentiginosa ...

    I agree from the photo on the orchid species web site. I didn’t look at this because of the spring blooming,but it does look very similar and I have no experience with this orchid.Thank you for your help,Stijn.

    Hi Steve,

    I agree with Stijn and his suggestion for Coelogyne lentiginosa. The details of the calli on the lip are not very clear in your images but the general growth habit and mode of flowering and lip shape seem to point to this species.

    References:
    Clayton, D.A. (2002) The Genus Coelogyne: A Synopsis. Natural History Publications (Borneo), Kota Kinabalu.
    George, E. & J.-C. (2011) Les Coelogynes. Éditions Belin, Paris, France.

    Cheers.

    Gary
