    Oncidium alliance is pretty certain. I'd say it's probably a Sigmatostalix species, so you probably need to dig around online and see what species of that genus are indigenous to the area you found this.

    I don't know what it is, but I'm certain it isn't a Sigmatostalix. The column on Sigmatostalix is very distictive. The plant habit is also notable and rather consistent through the genus. This is Sigma. picta.

    Here is Sigmatostalix picturatissima.
