    I think your names are at least close. On the two Schoenorchis the inflorescences seem extraordinarily long compared to what I have seen so I don't know about the species names.

    You should also be aware that there are hybrids that look pretty close to the species, so you cannot be totally sure what you have. Your enecyclia is a good example, but I'd apply that thinking to the catasetum and phal, as well.

    I don't know about the others, but Phalaenopsis equestris seems to be right.

    Thank you guys for your helps. I did more research on catasetums and i think The big one is close to catasetum orchidglade and the dark one is catamodes Black Magic (Catasetum Orchidglade with Mormodes sinuate) i'm sure that they are hybrids. And the enecyclia have more blooms on it now and i think they look like encyclia cochleata. But im really confuse about grammatophyllum and schoenorchis.
