    My initial gut reaction is that it's Maxillaria or a closely allied genus. If I have time I may peek around a bit later and see if I can come up with something more specific assuming nobody else chimes in.

    I agree that it is a Maxillaria but I don't know which species. However, here is a Max. guareimensis I have <link>. Compare the plant habit of mine and your photo and note the similarities. This may help you narrow down the species in your photo. The M. guareimensis is in section Erectae.
