The teeth on the side of the labellum transfer smoothly into the smooth sidelobes in C. moschata (as in your image). In C. cucullata the teeth on the labellum have a sudden and more obvious transition into the sidelobes, the sidelobes being noticeably taller than the teeth. In C. cucullata the reddish colouring on the tip of the labellum is also more pronounced and continues to the labellum teeth.
