Thanks for the ID and the paper. I guess I'm not the only one noticing these beautiful Mau'umae Trail orchid hybrids!

This seems to match the orchid published as a Dendrobium hybrid (antelope type) in the Bishop Museum occasional papers on page 2 of this publication:

There is quite a bit of interesting info about it in the publication.
