Could be C. cornuta, but I am not convinced. Would like to see a fully open flower.

Thanks Tony,

This is the first one I've seen. Do the flowers start to open from the top or bottom of the flower stem? I'll try to get some more photos.

Flowers open from the bottom usually in quick succession, so it is not unusual to see an inflorescence with all flowers open. It looks as though your plant has just about finished flowering, with the bottom ones possibly fertilised. C. cornuta usually doesn't have more than 10 flowers, whereas your has at least 15 flowers. I can't quite tell if the labellum is hairy or hairless, an important diagnostic. More photos would be good.

I wasn't able to get another photo. Looked for more in area but didn't find any.

Looking at this again I am more inclined to thinking it is a green form of C. clivicola. Can't see the leaf which in C. cornuta is close to the top of the bottom flower.

Thanks Tony - fair call...

There is a leaf, tight against stem a few centimetres below base of bottom flower, it has a brown tip. Not sure how to add photo to this entry

If the tip of the leaf is a few centimetres below the base of the bottom flower I would say its C. clivicola. Not sure myself how to add a photo.

Max 5 photos per sighting. Click edit, and remove one of the less diagnostic photos, then there will be an option to add another photo
