I think this photo has also been misposted. I do not think this flower is Phaius tancarvilleae .

These 2 images ARE Phaius tankervilleae var. alba. (white variety). Since the name 'var. alba' is not recognized by the International Orchid Register or any of our other sources, I had to put it here. I will put a comment on the images.
