Hi Dlandmo, Thank you for your quick response. I did try uploading two shots of the plant to give a better view, but somehow I could only get one to load. Need to study this uploading a bit more. Here's the other shot just to confirm-

Hi Tiggy
Yes, M.microhelia it is, although the illustration in John Pilbeams' book does not have the redd'ish stripe on the petals that yours has.

Lovely specimen by the way

Hi Tiggy,

M. Microhelia has a flower colour ranging from anything from white, yellow,green through to shades of red. So no concern with your  plants flower colour. It is a member of the Elongata group, which takes it's name from m. elongata and has similar variations of colour in cultivation.

Tank you Anthony, I wish I could afford one of John Philbeam's books, it would be a great help. Sad One day maybe Rolling Eyes. At the moment I am trying to save up for a greenhouse.

Delandmo- Thank you once again for the information, I find it very helpful. I now have some more that need Id's, but will do a few at a time. For some I have been given conflicting Id's and on checking it is sometimes very difficult to be 100% sure which is right.
I must say I find the gallery very helpful though.
