Yes, i googled for pictures, apparently the flower comes in different shape which doesn't make it easy to discern. I think it is the same, i shall update it, thank you for your help.

the other spotting you have looks like something similar - I´m not sure though

Thank you so much, I am not very good when it comes to flowers. I checked in a book, looks like it could be a pyramidal orchid.

nice looking orchid
