The one I have is the common pierardii like the one shown below (from the net):

    Hi, this orchid is always available in the flea market during sundays .

    This orchid species blooms between late February , March , April till early May almost similar treatment with Dendrobium anosmum aka sanggumay dry them from November onwards...

    This orchid species is quite variable , Philippines specimen plants are lighter in color than Thai, Burma , Vietnam or Southeast asian country.

    If you have friends in Thailand try acquiring some plants - they have different lip color .

    This orchid is also called "fairy sanggumay " a house in Nueva Ecija had several thousands of this beautiful orchid species. Mr. Nonito Dolera and Ms. Imelda Sarmiento had pictures of the stunning specimen orchids from that province. According to the owner of the property . He had already seen the orchid when he was still young and he is over 60 years old and the orchid is still alive. he just removed the keikis after 1 or 2 years and try to established them in live trees around his property.

    When a group of Singaporean arrived , they wanted to buy the entire tree where the Dendrobium aphyllum was growing but the old gentleman politely declined the offer ( according to Mr. Dolera , this old man is not attracted to the money )
