    Looks a bit like Cymbidium pumilum var alba but im a bit sketchy on that.... or even more likely, Cymbidium suave. A very cute little guy isnt he?

    It looks like Cymbidium madidum.

    Damn-I just found out that the accepted name for pumilum is now floribundum.

    To "Batman and Robin (aka Zainal)" this Cymb. apparently is endemic to Australia. Wikipedia says it is found growing from northern NSW up the coast of Queensland. in fact on an island 80 kms from Brisbane. (Bribie Is.) The Bribie Is. Orchid Soc. mention it in their newsletter, was found in an area in the north of the little island. I go there all the time. The aborigines many moons ago, once used the pseudobulbs for food, curing dysentery and the seeds as (oops) oral contraceptive. So fancy that. It is a Cymb. I have never seen before. Will follow up with more photos when all the inflorescenses are open.

    It is indeed Cym madidum. I have several in bloom right now. It is native to Aus as are canaliculatum, suave, suavissimum. These last three are a bit tricky to grow.. canaliculatum requires a long dry spell in winter to boom.
