    You're welcome, Zain, and thank you for posting so many intriguing orchids. Among the blooming Diplos I've seen in the US a few did look close to yours. I've been told this sub-group of species is difficult to distinguish but anisobulbon looks superficially similar to your plant in a number of features, may be a good starting point though probably not the exact ID.

    It's my pleasure I like to share all my blooming orchids in my garden if I can do it that is my satisfaction at least our communities are aware about the existing of such unique bizarre shape and color which they never seen before.I think it's getting close Nat maybe you are right after I saw your attachment the tongue is very prominent this one could be Diplos.
