Kindly examine and identify this Conchidium sp (Orchidaceae)…… Could this be Conchidium filiforme or Conchidium microchilos….???

Habitat: Wild, Evergreen forest

Of course Conchidium but which one?
I think microchilos has reticulated silver linings on the bulb where as filiforme has not such reticulations. I always get confused.
Please show a good image of the bulb.
That ways this could be 

Sorry, pressed wrong button. My poor English.
I meant I always get confused with which one has silver reticulations and which one doesn’t have.
Please share some closeups of healthy bulbs if possible.

Please look into this image showing the bulbs….. I think the reticulate silver linings are conspicuous. You are the better judge. Attachments (1)

This is Conchidium filiformis

I would say this is Conchidium filiforme. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Conchidium microchilos (Dalzell) Rauschert ??

Yes, it is Conchidium microchilos dear …, thank you very much for ID my Orchid

Or can it be

Thank you very much for providing ID link.
It is very close but, inner things are not matching, please check collage, right is resized EFI image

Yes, it is Conchidium filiforme dear …, thank you very much for ID my plant and providing ID link

Porpax filliformis – supposedly has secund flower, sepal and petal margin has glandular hairs.
Porpax microchilos has non-secund flowers and petals and sepals do not have hairs on margin.
I do see that the petals and sepals do seem to have glands on the margin here, so I would call this Porpax filliformis.

Yes, it is Porpax filiformis. Thank you very much for ID my Orchid and provided good description
