If it is sequential then how come it has 2 flowers?
Here is what Orchidspot.com has to say about that:

All the member of the Subgenus Cochlopetalum bloom continually over a period of months or years. The indeterminate flowerscape drops the senescent flower as a new bud begins to open so that 2 simultaneous flowers are present only briefly, if at all. Individual flowers are quite long-lasting, and up to 20 flowers may be borne on a scape, so that a single inflorescence may continue to flower for more than a year. On multigrowth plants, 2 or more young flowerscape may begin to bloom before the eldest cease to flower. Flowers may occur at any time of year, but is more likely in summer.

Nice liemianum :) Those are very attractive wide petals... and a great photo, too!

So it's multifloral..
A sequential multifloral would be the best term. Regular multiflorals are like roths, they open everything up at pretty much the same time while these cochlos can bloom and bloom for over a year.

Most of my sequential phrags have more than one flower open at a time -- sort of overlapping one another: as one is at the end of it's stay, another is enjoying the beginning of it's life. I wouldn't call these multifloral.

Nice flower!
