    This plant almost died last year...2 new growths did !! So, it has struggled..granted with it's 2 lonely blooms, it doesn't look like the spike of blooms in your link ! The only other one that is close is giryamae..and the spur is not as long and the lip doesn't have the distinct roundy point to it.
