Just a thought......you might save yourself some time by contacting the guy that runs this website: http://www.dendrochilum.com/
There are far too many Dendrochilum to wade through, lovely as they are, unless you have a whole heap of time to kill. If its not this genus he might also be able to point you in the right direction.

Right, I've gone and removed the first pic. There can't be very many orchids with yellow stalks and bulbs, right? But nooo, online resources are scarce. Oh well... Time to hit the taxonomy papers... ~_~'

The first pic. could also be a Coelogyne of some kind. I would separate the photo into a different spotting. Although it's difficult to id without flowers, it's really good to see some shots of the vegetative parts of orchids. The flowers tend to be very distracting and these pseudobulbs are very attractive, I think.

The second and third pics are, but not the first. They're from the same area, just a few metres apart, so I just thought they'd be from the same species. They aren't, huh? I'll try and find identfication books at the local library next week.

Are these from the same spotting? The reason I ask, is that the first orchid has paired leaves and the later photos just have one per pseudobulb. If they are, I suspect that there are two species growing together here. I saw two plants with pseudobulbs this colour in the Cameron Highlands. The first was a Liparis species - a slight possibility for the 1st picture. The second was a Dendrochilum. The later photos here have a strong resemblance to Dendrochilum. Unfortunately, my book on orchids of CH is in storage!
F.R.I.M have a great online resource for Malaysian plants but for some reason I can't find the link to it.
