    Not sure of the first two but the third looks like Phalaenopsis pulchra.

    The first two from the top looks like Bulbophyllum. Meanwhile the the third looks like Phalaenopsis lueddemanniana. The 4th looks like another Bulbophyllum.

    Do you know where in the Philippine mountains they allegedly came from?

    first one could be Bulbophyllum bolsteri, or cantenulatum, just my first picks, but there is many to choose from.
    3rd one definitely Phal pulchra.
    last one looks like Bulbophyllum megalanthum to me, is it very fragrant?
