Hi Gary,
It's Ansellia africana.
A pity it is such an awful colour, it's a beautiful epiphytic orchid with yellow petals with more or less brown spots. Hence the common name 'Leopard Orchid'.

Hey Maddy I really like the green petals. Now you disappoint us all and tell us they are actually yellow with brown spots.
