Several of us photographed Maxillaria speciosa on the Orchid Conservation Alliance tour of Colombia in November 2018. Many of the plants had finished, but there was one large plant with numerous large showy spidery flowers. This was on the trail leading up from Montezuma Rain Forest lodge in Tatamá National Park at around 2,500 m elevation. The cloud forest habitat is always wet. During the "dry season" there is less rainfall, but the atmosphere is always humid and buoyant. Max. speciosa is distributed in Colombia and Ecuador. The flowers have a delightful fragrance which reminds me of frangipani. I'm fascinated by the long segments, yet the lip is so small. I was lucky enough to find this insect clambering over one of the flowers. Could this be the pollinator? Unfortunately, I could not wait around for it to find the source of the fragrance and check out whether it managed to remove pollinia.
