    Had good look what you guys have in US with this name, and my plant is a bit different, or? Well looked on Huge specimen of Marnis plant and couple others. And my plant smells rather nice too, little bit like a nettle but actually much nicer in day time.

    Name already confirmed by Dendrochilum specialist too. So or it is different clone or am not sure if some plants may be wrong labeled?

    Mine are uncatum var. uncatum. There is also a var longifolium that has different attachments/side lobes on the lip. Mine have 2 projections on each side as opposed to yours with a single. You might check with Jim Cootes. Here is the one that Eric Christenson ID'd as uncatum var uncatum. It looks the same as others that Jim Cootes ID'd for me.
