Not confident about this one. I'll leave it for Tobias.

Thanks Cath... thought it might C.atrovespa, but didn't think the labellum was right for it? And the sepals look like they have those thick brown clubs? But not in any way an orchid expert!

Yep, looks like C phaeoclavia to me. The labellum can be pretty similar between the two but the short sepals and the slightly thick brown clubs suggest C phaeoclavia.
