    Default need orchid identification

    I came across some decay fallen branches. Noticed some green growths, close examination found some tiny orchids about 3" across. I noted they tend to take residence higher up approx.,8 ft above tree trunks, hence they are not noticeable. Any idea? Thanks in advance.

    Maybe this plant could be a Thrixspermum, Gastrochilus, Tuberolabium or Grosourdya either?

    We cant identify this plant without its flowers displayed.
