    Looks a bit like B. pardalotum but the lateral petals are too short and the over-all dimensions of the plant also seem too small. (?)

    It isn't pardalotum, Kelly. Everything is way different.

    Edit: this is a tiny species, the plant looks very similar to B. intersitum(also labeled as B. odontopetalum by some).

    Is this what Forrest was selling as "rusty"(?) when he sold off his collection?

    It looks a lot like that plant. The rusty has bulbs that are comparable in size to dolichoglottis, but the leaves are almost twice the size of dolichoglottis leaves. The flowers look really similar. Does yours open up a little more?

    Not much more and that is why I call it cup shape.

    Don't know if we have the same plant but hopefully you find the ID for your rusty.

    I call it sp 'Rusty'. Forrest and I applied the clone name because the original plants we received had a rust colored moss/algae growing on them.

    Any other info for the background of 'Rusty'? I've got the big one that Forrest auctioned off and have been trying to come up with an ID.
