This one is in the section Lepidorhiza. The p-bulbs are close together but the plant is large with leaves up to 14 1/2" /36 cm long and 2 2/3"/7 cm wide. The flowers open successively along an inflorescence that can reach 18" /45 cm long. The species name comes from the lumpy outgrowths on the labellum (caruncules).
It hails from the Philippines.

Here's a pic of my orthoglossum. It has 3 spikes going this summer.
Similar but not as nasty as carunculatium.
