    I thought at first it was an Octomeria, except that you are in the wrong continent - your walks don't take you quite as far as Brazil, I suppose ? But then doubt was removed when I spotted the length of the old flower scapes. I too would think Dendrochilum, but for a little doubt in my mind as to whether a Phillipines centred (?) genus stretches to your part of the world ?
    I am becoming very interested in the paleobotany of orchids : what evolved where and when - the latter , when, becomes relevant if you have a key to the separation of the continents one from another after the single supercontinent - Gondwanaland, or Pangaea broke up. It provides a good clue as to where to look for the genus of an orchid, if you know which continent etc it comes from.

    I wish one day I will visit South America as so many beautiful orchids there, Geoff I'm not very good in history of paleobotany including separation of continent but I'm still amazed how come Vanda hindsii supposedly native to Indonesia still we can get in Northern part of Australia, again the distribution of Vanda helvola from Peninsular Malaysia, Sumatera, Borneo, Philippine , far east including Irian Jaya and Papua New Guinea very odd they have different color like brown,yellow and some claimed as red too.

    Loved the pictures. For those people like me, I have only seen orchids in pots sold at nurseries and retail stores. It is very easy to forget that these magnificent flowers originated from nature, jungles, and rain forests. It is almost odd for me to see an orchid growing in the trees, but is gives perspective on why/how we grow orchids the way we do...we try to mimic nature.
