Thanks Bradley and Wellsy

Thanks Bradley and Wellsy ,
You are spot on, I had been looking at Epigeneium photos and couldn't find one that quite matched. Coelogyne Ovalis it is

more research

Actually, after you referred me to coelogyne, and I have done some more checking and am wondering whether this is actually fimbriata rather than ovalis?

Very similar!

I checked out how similar the flowers are too each other and it would be difficult to tell from a pic of the flower only.

Discription below from Jay's orchid species.

Coelogyne fimbriata.
A medium sized, cool to hot growing epiphytic or lithophytic orchid on limestone cliffs in narrow crevasses that is found in Nepal, Bhutan, Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi, Guizhou, Hainan, Jiangxi, Sichuan, Xizang and Yunnan provinces of China, Hong Kong, northeastern India, Burma, Thailand, penninsular Malaysia, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam in primary broadleaf evergreen lowland forests or primary montane forests at elevations of sealevel to 1500 meters with 1.2 to 1.6" [3 to 4 cm] between each, ovoid to ellipsoid pseudobulbs that carry 2 apical, oblong-elliptic, acute , plicate, 5 nerved, gradually narrowing below into the petiolate base leaves leaves that blooms in the fall arising on the newest mature pseudobulb with a terminal, slender, 2" [4 to 5 cm] long, erect, fractiflex rachis, 1 to 3 flowered, racemose inflorescence subtended with a narrow basal sheath and carrying 1 to 3, fragrant [musk], long-lived flowers held just above the leaves. This species requires a short rest in mid-winter.

Coelogyne ovalis.
Found in Assam, Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, Xizang and Yunnan provinces of China, northeastern India, Myanamar, Thailand and Vietnam in montane valleys on trees or rocks at elevations of 600 to 2100 meters as a small sized, warm to cool growing epiphyte or lithophyte with 2 to 3" [5 to 7.5 cm] between each ovoid-fusiform, smooth, ridged pseudobulbs enveloped basally by several dry sheaths and carrying 2, apical, erect, narrowlly elliptic, acute to acuminate, gradually narrowing below into the elongate, petiolate base leaves that blooms in the summer through winter on a slender, 4.8" [12 cm] long, few flowered inflorescence arising on a mature pseudobulb with deciduous floral bracts and successive opening, fragrant flowers.

Let us know which species you have.

Cheers!
