Orchid attracts insect

I'm almost certain that this orchid now in bloom is a Catasetum galeritum. I remember having misnamed it last year. Luckily the mistake was seen by an orchid collector, who notified me right away. I don't remember the flowers attracting as many insects as this year, but it was probably an oversight on my part.

Oh, great picture. The flowers are beautiful and I can see the insects there, as well. I would never be able to remember all the names.
