Bulbophyllum lyriforme

Bulbophyllum lyriforme

Bought this plant as Bulbophyllum lyriforme. This is the first it has flowered for me. The flowers dont open much more than this. I can't find any mention of this name anywhere can someone verify or shed some light on the name.

Bulbophyllum lyriforme


Not familiar with this one pawpaw, but it looks like it's from section Stenochilus.
B.baileyi and B.emiliorum are also from this section. I probably have a paper on this somewhere.
