Catasetum uncatum

bought this plant as catasetum purum but turns out to be catasetum uncatum. seems like another common mistake makes by most people. 
the uncatum has a pointed beak and the lateral labellum is non serrated as in catasetum purum. 
the flower of the uncatum is small, in fact much smaller than i imagined when i first saw the flower myself. height of the flower is slightly over two cm and the with is about once and half cm. it has a faint minty smell. 
this would would be the second wrong id case for this season and thank goodness it is a species catasetum or else i would have to keep another NOID in my collection.
