Got this one as O. caulescens. Hope the ID is correct
Looks like O. rufilabris to me.
Think you might be right.
Really like the close up's of the bloom. Thanks for the post.
Spectacular photographs...great species that I think i’ll need to look for!
This is what I know as rufilabris. Frequently sold as setigera.
So what species would mine be then?
I don't know. If you like, I can move this thread to the Orchid Identification section so those who are good at ID are more likely to see it.
I would think yours is more likely to be setigera than rufilabris with the pronounced filamentous flower bracts. Interestingly, your blooms seem to be spaced out a bit more than most of the setigera I have seen (including one I killed), but maybe it’s just that your photos are real good.
Gerrit’s seems to be spot on for rufilabris. A drawing from Seidenfaden (on the Swiss Orchid Database) does not show the filamentous bracts on rufilabris and is also consistent with SITF confirmations for rufilabris.
I've posted this before as Oberonia setigera and was corrected by Daniel Geiger. The filaments are much longer on setigera.
