Morning at Mararu, part 13

Our pediatrician friend, Zilma, is also an orchid collector. Most of her plants are placed in their most natural habitat, meaning trees. She rattled off the name of the one in the attached image, but by the time I got to pen and paper, I'd forgotten. I call it a rat-tailed orchid, which is the translation of the common name.

Looks like Lady-of-the-night orchid (Brassavola nodosa), one of the few species orchids that hybrid fanciers still like to grow.
