    My opinion. No. 1 is probably Coelogyne trinervis. The stick-like one is probably Papilionanthe or Luisia. No. 9 looks like Dend chrysotoxum or brymerianum.

    And this one, species or hybrid ? Sorry if i'm asking a lot of hard question from you guys but these cattlayas are specimen size and someone wants to sell them so i need a guess whether these are hybrids or species. Thank you very much.

    Who knows ? If you like them, and if the plants are good, and then as the third thing if the price is good, buy.
    But do make sure the plants are good. Are there roots ? Are the bulbs solid ? Do the leaves look clean ?
    But i am sure the first is a hybrid.m
    . The second could be an alba form of One of the oarge flowered species.

    I agree with Geoff. As long as they're healthy, you like them, and the price is right, buy them.

    The last plant in your original post I do not believe to be a Renanthera. Renanthera leaves grow directly opposite each other (the scientific name for that plant form escapes me at the moment) thus my guess is that this is a vanda of some ilk. When it blooms you can post it up and we'll have some fun trying to ID it then.

    Your very last pic looks like a sesquipedale but without the benefit of seeing the whole plant and being able to judge flower size it's a tough call. Some angracoid flowers look so similar you need the whole picture to tell them apart.

    Hope this helped.
