    Default Need your help to find ID of this orchid

    Hi all,

    I have one orchid but I cant find its ID, Please help me if you know about this species. I think it belong to "Pholidota" but I cant find from the sources on internet.

    This is the flower






    In the top of mountain area (dry area), the trunk short and big.






    Lower mountain area (more humidity), the trunk much longer

    My first guess was the 'dove' orchid. But with these i'm just guessing...whatever it is, it's looking very very cool! Does it smell pretty too???

    I think your plant could be a Pholidota species but I do not know which one.
