Bulbophyllum caloglossum

Now ID as Bulbophyllum caloglossum

I took these photos at a friends place this afternoon. He has had this Bulbophyllum for 4 years and this is the first time it has flowered. It had no name and is one that I have not seen before so I am hopeing that one of OOL members can help with a name for it.
The holes in the lip and petals are due to a caterpillas lunch.
The bulbs are small, about the size of a large pea.

Maybe?

Great looking species, could it be caloglossum?

That Is

Zach, that's what I'm leaning to but I will wait and see if I get any other suggestions.

Bulbophyllum caloglossum

Hi Eric,

I'd also go with Bulbophyllum caloglossum from New Guinea. The segments agree with Schltechter's line drawings.

Cheers.

caloglossum

I also agree with B.caloglossum, on this occasion Schlechter's line drawing is easy to follow, this is not always the case, sometimes they are hard to follow. Having said that I could not be without his monumental work on PNG it is a book of indispensable information.
