    The lip isn't right for Gastrochilus, they have frilly lips.

    Ron, did you find the species name yet? I am pretty sure it is Gastrochilus species too.

    Dawn, I have tried but no luck.

    If not Gastrochilus, it could be Acampe sp.

    Tom, I haven't been able to ID it either. Dawn I think you need to send it here so I can study it better. I am quite sure I will eventually be able to ID it for you.
