    I am not an expert. I have photos of Den. aphyllum(=Den.pierardii) and Den. primulinum. Let's see the difference of their lip...

    No Den.appyllum have such lines on its lip.(The petal of appyllum is much wider too)
    So I think yours is Den. primulinum.

    Well, upon close inspection of the blooms they definitely have clear lines on the lip, so San, things are indeed pointing to dendrobium primulinum... Many thanks!

    Michael,
    I might be off on this, as my search was limited, but many of the primulinum pictures I saw have a golden spot on the lip. Aphyllum/pierardii/cucullatum don't. If, indeed, your plant is in the later grouping, it makes me wonder if the names might be applied to subspecies within a species...ie, yours might be aphyllum var. cucullatum whereas mine might be aphyllum var. pierardii or something like that. I wonder if yours is a natural cross between two species? It's still very pretty.
