please help me identify this Dendrobium species.

Location: Manipur
Habitat: wild, epiphytic
Collected on Nov 2022

Something close to Dendrobium treutleri (Hook.f.) Schuit. & Peter B.Adams ??

The structure of lateral sepals and lip seems to be different from Dendrobium treutleri (Hook.f.) Schuit. & Peter B.Adams. Also there is contrasting colour difference between my sample and the suggested specimen.

This looks like Dendrobium fuscescens.
