    I purchased this plant as Bulbophyllum potamophilum from Far East Agriculture in May 2017. Indeed, most of the internet photos of B. potamophilum seems to be B. himantosepalum (I haven't seen a photo of real B. potamophilum yet). B. himantosepalum is a fairly recently described species (2015).

    I made photos of the dissected flower, and posted in my blog post (link).

    What an incredible and bizarre form. I've never heard of that species before. Thank you for sharing!

    Also, the dissection is really fascinating. I was glad you performed one for this flower!
