Would anyone care to hazard a guess about the plant in the attached 

It came up in a pot which originally contained a Nervilia (Orchidaceae) 
purchased from a commercial grower. When the orchid had gone on to the 
great compost heap of eternity and I was about to throw the pot out, I 
noticed signs of life - whatever this is. As to size, the pot is about 10 
cm square, and the inflorescence perhaps 2 cm long.

Other clues: for a time this pot did live in a sun room near a couple of 
anthuriums (obtained from Tom Croat about 20 years ago). They do flower 
and fruit and it is possible that a seed fell into this pot, although 
neither of them ever flowered until much, MUCH larger than this plant 
(leaves in the one meter size range), and the infloresences don't resemble 
this in shape or color. (I'll withold the name of those plants for now - 
both the same species - so as not to influence anyone's thoughts.)
