    Hi Maurice, looks to me like Bulb. baileyi, or if not that then something else in section Sestochilos. Beautiful whatever it is!

    Yeah bulbo baileyi, or as we call it in FNQ, the fruit fly orchid. This one usually grows in long branching rhizomes that can cover an enormous area. I've seen wild specimens with leaves 30 cm long. Their flowers are interesting in that they only seem to attract a particular species of fruit fly (Queensland fruit fly, don't know the fancy name), which will then walk over the flower until it steps on the hinged labellum and gets tipped into the column, after which he promptly flies off with some pollen on his back, off to the next flower. Yes the flowers have a strong, alluring fragrance during the day. A wonderful orchid!
