Default Phalaenopsis micholitzii??

Phal experts, I need your help! I have one Phal in my entire collection and its labeled micholitzii, but might be something else. What about pallens? Any thoughts? If the photo below isn't helpful, I made a video: Show & Tell- Phalaenopsis micholitzii?? - YouTube

I don't think it's a pallens, the lip doesn't fit the description.

It's probably something like Phalaenopsis cornu-cervi x Phalaenopsis micholitzii crossed back with hieroglyphica.

I have a Phal pallens, and while at first glance it does look a lot like your plant, like Mr.F says, the lip isn't quite right. Lip on mine is much narrower and doesn't have that 'prong' on each side. There could be some pallens in it, but it's likely not pure pallens.

Phal. micholitzii is extremely rare in cultivation, only 2 populations were identified ever.

If you can find one for a good price, definitely go for it!

Steve, for what it's worth, I like yours better. The color and shape of the lip are very cool.
