    Default Unknown Specie Orchid for ID

    Cheers,

    Got this one during the last orchid show, it was in flower then, however the flowers are almost done when I got it and decided not to take any photos, then put it in one corner and forgot
    about it. Then yesterday, when I took a unknown sp to be photographed i happened to look at the corner of my garden an noticed that something is in bloom... so I took a photo of it, the flowers are quite small and wobbles at the slightest breeze and my shaking hand is not helping as well... believe me, this is the best photo i've taken of it... plant is similar to phalaenopsis as well and a quick search on Jim's book tells me that it is Pomatocolpa kunstleri, can somebody confirm? Was not able to detect any fragrance.

    Randy.
