    Hi Lin, the flower strongly resembles the oculus-bearing form of Den. findlayanum; if it is that species the pseudobulbs should have a very distinctive 'string of beads' look to them. Might be a hybrid or related species if the bulbs/canes looks different. Could you post a clearer shot of vegetation (leafed and leafless pbulbs)? That's often useful in ID'ing these.

    Thank you v much indeed Nathaniel - I will certainly get some more pics in tomorrow. The plant was given to me earlier this year and was not in good condition at all - in fact a lot of the leaves had been attacked by slugs/snails but surprisingly one of the canes produced these v pretty blooms and I was thrilled. I have since potted it up and cut off a couple of the older canes which I am hoping to get some keiki's off, in time (hold thumbs!). I will get as many shots as I can to help ID the plant....thanks. Lin

    Not a great looking specimen at the moment I'm afraid, but looking better as time goes by - you will see that it doesn't have the 'string of beads' look - so perhaps a hybrid.....

    Thanks for the vegetation photos, actually looks quite happy and well-grown to my eyes. But yeah, definitely not findlayanum and maybe not even a recent hybrid thereof. There are several other species with similar color patterns this might be or derive from if a hybrid. I'll try to look up more of the other oculus-bearing species when I have time, which may be a week or two since my new semester of school starts today... You could also try looking at anything tagged as 'section Dendrobium' at IOSPE's page for genus Dendrobium, though this may not be an exhaustive list.

    Many thanks Nat - greatly appreciated - I guess it will take me another couple of seasons to ID all my plants as they flower - and heck, I am enjoying the exercise in time, patience and attention! Am off to UK soon for 6 weeks - the only beauty I will miss is my Stanhopea occulata which will bloom while I am away - son given firm and strict instructions to photograph for me!!!!
