    I agree. C. mossiae. I did a quick search and found a few that match this one fairly closely.

    Cheers,

    this flower is far from a c.mossiae,it could be a c.lueddemanniana however check if if has the horns to make sure. i have been collecting c. mossiae for over 20 years, and i have never one like this,perhaps hybrid.good luck

    It looks more of a C. Leuddemanniana to me ... or it can also be C Gravesiana...
