In the second photo I can clearly see the labellum sidelobes margins have teeth so it can not be C. transitoria where I thought the sidelobes in your previous post where entire (not toothed) even though the midlob margin before that did have teeth. ( it was not as clear in that photo) I assume you considered these were different?

I will investigate. There are at least 5 seperate groups at Woodlands. Later this week I will look at each group individually and see what I find.
Photos to date come from 3 of these groups from memory.
Thanks for your comments.
