This is not taken from correct angel. Please share front views and
views of stem and leaf. If I had to guess I would go for Dendrobium
moschatum.
but thats tentative,,,,

Thanks. I will post another photo of the stem and leaves - at present
there are no flowers. These flowers do not open any further.

Regards,

Vijay

Dendrobiums do display deformity one of which is not opening
completely. I will just need to see the lip, if any is present there
for that I need to have a front view. Please also check the leaves
and internode. Show me a picture of the tip of the leaf.

Dear friends,

Thanks for your interest in my query. I have attached 2 more photos of the same orchid taken in June this year. Hope this information is sufficient.

Regards,

Vijay
