Vanda tricolor or is this a new species or hybrid?

This beautiful vanda is brought from a local nursery who imported this plant from Indonesia as vanda tricolor, when this plant was flowering in 2008 thought it may be the pesticides which cause the flower to be deform but the 2nd round of bloom yield the same shape again. The lip does not look like the other vanda tricolor.The petals are reflexed and they do have a little twist.

This vanda is fragrant and is grown in a 70 % light conditon.

The following are the flower in different angle.
