    Default Dendrobium - looks like anceps

    This orchid looks a lot like Dendrobium anceps, but it is different. The flowers are distinctly striped and the stem/leaf arrangement is different. Any ideas what this is?

    Can't help with the ID but love the flowers and looks like it has an attractive growth habit.

    I got an accurate ID from another forum. It is Dendrobium distichum!
