    I made another trip over there today and took a few more pictures. He told me it was an Encyclia hamburyii. Here is a better picture of the psuedobulbs growing on the tree and a few of the trunk.

    Well it does look similar to that one also...but the reason I stated/guessed that it may have been selligera was simply because of the colour of the petals and sepals. Hamburyi tends to be more tan in colour and verging on a gold colour. Yours seems more brown/red.
    As I said, I do stand corrected if that is actually it's species name.
    Either way, it is fantastic.
    Cheers
