I have a picture of my colleague’s orchid which was found in Papua. I want to know the name.

can you share a better (high resolution) picture please?

Genera= maybe Diplocaulobium

I was thinking of some Dendrobium, but realised that it have been separated out of Dendrobium as Diplocaulobium !!
Diplocaulobium validicolle most probably!!

Just got a reply from Dr. Andre from Royal Botanic Gardens Kew.
This could be Diplocaulobium phalangium.

I can agree with this, Diplocaulobium phalangium.
