    Hmmmmm... the flowers looks close to O. excavatum, but I think it isn't it. How looks the leaves, and have you only a one flower picture? I couldn't see ist very good

    Hi Gerrit, This looks to me to be Oncidium obryzatum. It has a long-clawed, very broad, reniform lip midlobe; basally 4-lamellate callus, with 3 apical teeth; elongate column wings that are acute above.

    Reference: Königer, W. (2007) Oncidium – A Monograph, Vol. III. Verlag Helga Königer, München.
