    Christenson "Phalaenopsis A Monograph" writes:

    Phal. wilsonii has multiflower racemes of 10- 15 flowers and the obcordate lip midlobe.

    Phal. honghensis is different: short inflorences of 4 to 6 flowers and oblong lip midlobes.

    Phal. wilsonii and stobartiana have the longest inflorences in the subgenus.

    Thank you all for your help full information. So this one will be wilsonii because the spike is short and just have few flower.
    I do love this genus.
