Default Ornithocephalus cf. inflexus

I posted this last year as Ornith. gladiatus, but someone on another forum provided information about what the real gladiatus looks like and this is definitely not it. Closest match I've found is inflexus, if anyone knows much about this genus and can confirm or deny my ID I'd really appreciate it.

Anyway, this is a real charmer of a plant (really the whole genus seems great!), easygoing and quite floriferous. Full detail of the tiny flowers is beyond the reach of my photographic equipment, I'll see if I can borrow a better camera/lens from a friend to get some macro shots.

That is a magnificent display of blooms....and I love white orchid flowers especially if its fragrant....
its hard to distinguish this from the gladiatus....its got to have different lip or center....msybe if you did a close up of the flower;the gladiatus and inflexus looks pretty similar (the plants are both fanlike and same size....the inflorescence are the same array of white spray) very difficult to distingiush from your old pictures and the present and comparing it to the IOSPE files....I even looked at some recent flicker files .... its in the comparison of the inner close up of the center of the flowers

Thanks Bud! Most of the pictures online purporting to be gladiatus are actually inflexus or something similar, the real gladiatus does look fairly different in most regards. I'll see if I can link to some illustrations of what gladiatus should look like...
