Star Orchid From Rejang Land Area

In Rejang Land its called as anggrek soka, because the flowers like soka flowers, in Indonesian Language Called as Angrek Bintang (Star Orchid). I found three species in Rejang Land, taken near Kaba Mountain.
I want to know abaut this species, some body say it is Epidendrum spp, but just wonder coz i read in book, they say its from South America Origin, like Cuba, Panama and Venezuela. If it is true from there, how this orchid arrive to Rejang Land forest? or its bring by english men or dutch from abroad when they colonism us for more than hundreds years? or this is different variant of epidendrum? Other pic can see at link

For temporary, i just compare the photo with similar photo in flickr.com, any body can inform us abaut this orchid name or other information? Its really help us to indentify.

They are definitely reed-stemmed Epidendrum crucifix orchids, but not Epidendrum radicans (perhaps the best-known crucifix orchid). E. radicans has roots growing opposite nearly every leaf, and resupinate flowers (the lip pointing down, not up as with all of these pictures).

And yes, their ancestry is from the Americas (which were also being colonized and exploited by these same groups of Europeans).
