    Hi John. Well I am no expert on the Stans. but I do have a few and this one looks like a wardii hybrid to me. Unless you are sure it is a species, to me looks like a hybrid between occulata and wardii. I could of course be wrong, and am welcome to be corrected. But though it may help you along with the ID. The spots are very occulata, the colour and shape though very similar to wardii, minus the dark column foot of wardii.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers

    This is my wardii which I believe has not been hybridized (purchased from major orchid name):



    Yours does look a bit different, but I think it is mostly wardii.

    Post S. ronsard?

    In line with what has been said, and the photos, I think this could be Stanhopea ronsard which was developed by Lecoufle of France in late 1980’s of wardii x oculata.

    I agree with you Allan, it really looks like a wardii x occulata also known as Ronsard. That's a beauty John.
