Not sure about this. The calli on the labellum side lobes appear stalked and I have seen yellow forms of late flowering C. ustulata. What do you think Cath?

It's not very clear, but in image 2 it looks like all those teeth are on the mid-lobe, and the side lobes look relatively smooth. I would tend to go for C. moschata.

I think it looks more like C. moschata than C. ustulata.

ok, it looks like I'm outnumbered, but to me the calli look longer than what I associate with C. moschata,
