    Dendrobium for sure, probably Dendrobium kingianum.

    can you take a pic of the flower straight on? I suspect it may be kingianum but can't see the true flower structure

    Looks like a Den kingianum or a hybrid of it.

Size:  117.0 KB it is very difficult to photograph as the flower is so tiny, the dorsal petals, the petals and the lateral sepals are all long and pointed. The lip has little tiny purple points and the back of the petals have a slight purple brush on it.

    Yes you are right, I found it in one of my orchid books. It is a Dendrobium kingianum, the flower looks exactly the same. The flowers are triangular, curved in toward the center.

    i don't think that is a full kingianum, the petals are kind of long on your flowers for a den. kingianum. plus the tiny little spots on the lips... i could be wrong, but i think it is a hybrid of den kingianum and den speciosum, known as Dendrobium Delicatum. check out the named variety 'Apple Blossom' for one that seems very nearly identical to yours. Delicatum has the longer petals and delicate little faint spots on the lip, where den kingianum has shorter petals than the sepals, and tends to have more blotchy color on the lip.
