    The majority of my C. mossiae have the same color pattern on the lip than Eric's plant.

    In my opinion it is a C. mossiae. of course not a semi-alba.
    C. lueddemanniana's have the yellow from the tube going almost till the edge of the side lobes.
    C. mossiae's have the yellow from the tube ending away from the edge where usually two white eyes fill the space.

    On most mossiae's the lip color pattern end away from the edge and give space to a broad rim around the lip.
    On most lueddemanniana's the lip color pattern covers the whole lip without or with only a very narrow rim.

    If somebody has a better definition be welcome to confirm or correct me.

    No better definition, it's perfect. Many thanks, Horst.
    It is seems different from my other mossiae (I have a 3rd one but never seen in bloom, soon on your screen !).
    Here is the lip of my mossiae tipo. In fact, you're right, it's close from this one but colors are more saturated :
