    It looks like it could be some sort of lady slipper with the pouch broken off. It would be easier to tell with some clear photos of the foliage. I can't think of any genera with four-petaled flowers besides the slippers. Appears to have pseudobulbs for foliage though so I'm stumped.

    Kinda looks like a Bulbophyllium of some kind.....
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.
