The leafs look similar to that of the Calanthe Genus but the flowers seem more like that of the Pleurothallis - I wouldn't have a clue as to exactly what it is.
A full photo which includes full leaf, some root shots and something to compare it size with may help other narrow down the identification further.
Very nice though.

Don't hold me to this but at first glance it reminds me Calanthe pulchra, I am on RnR and don't have my books with me, so this is a shot off my head.
