    Default Unknown Bloomer for ID

    Hi, Can anyone help in giving the ID of this orchid?

    It bloomed and its flowers open in the morning and start to close by the late afternoon. By evening, its totally closed.

    Flowering period remains for over a month with the earlier blooms falling and the newer buds opening as the older flowers fall. There are still some buds on the stalk.

    Got this is the Bicol region, particularly in Legaspi.

    That should be Pteroceras cladostachyum, coloration and longer lasting flowers gives it away, also is your inflorescence branching?

    I also got the same kind of this, you can check my post at http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...ow-orchid.html but the color of the lip of yours are more pronounced I think...the blooming time is really very short.
