I am actually trying to figure out if this was mislabelled... in one of my fb group someone suggested it to be philippinensis... and based on the lip, i found on phals.net, the lip looks like a philippinensis, but the overall shape does not look like philippinensis so at this point i dont know... maybe any orchid judge/experts can weigh in...

I agree. It doesn’t look like pure schilleriana to me.
Have you looked at the video about this species on the Orchids Limited website? It’s quite different,

I did watch his 2 videos. It’s definitely not the same as the 2N... but there is another video where he pointed to one that us 10yrs old ... couldnt get a clear pic from the video but it somehow is close to mine with lighter color and more yellow on the lip

I did. She has not reconfirmed it yet if it was mis labelled. I i also did consult another grower and he thinks its a philippinensis because of the yellow lobe.

No fragrance. My understanding is schills have rosy fragrance

This is not schilleriana but could be philippinense or x-leucorrhoda. The yellow side lobe is a giveaway.

Another possibility is a schilleriana x stuartiana.
