    Not very confident this is it.

    Compare yours to S. nigripes and see if it is close.

    I agree with Kelly.

    That's a beautiful orange-coloured form of Stanhopea nigripes. The small flowers and shape of the hypochile with that knee or bend < 90 degrees, seems to me to be that species.

    Reference: Jenny, R. (2010) The Stanhopea Book. Rudolf Jenny, Allmendingen, Switzerland.

    Yes. Tenman is correct.

    It is closer to Stan. anfracta, now that I compare it with Rudolf Jenny's publication. It seems that Stan. anfracta has a < 45 degree knee bend in the hypochile.
