Bulbophyllum hirundinis

Originally posted as Bulbophyllum sp ex Vietnam. ID now confirmed.

Steve, I believe that this is one of the parents of the plant that you show in your image on http://www.orchidsonline.com.au/node/6311, B.makoyanum X B.sibuyanense.

A friend sent me these images for id purposes, the info I recieved was that this species shown is from Vietnam.

I can't see B.sibuyanense as one of the parents in your cross (too many flowers)
Your image is more likely to be B.makoyanum and this one shown from Vietnam.
