    Yep, i think your right Branka! O. gladiatus seems to fit the bill, although most of them ive seen have a higher, thinner dorsal sepal. Congrats!

    Lovely plant! Some advice of how you grow? Looked it up and it's very difficult since the pictures I saw where not as good as yours.

    Beautiful Ornithocephalus, very well grown.
    Maybe Ornithocephalus inflexus ?

    No, flowers on O. inflexus are a completely different shape. O. inflexus doesnt appear to have that characteristic lip or whatever it is (its hard to tell) either.
