    Thank you for a help, yes I did same considaration, was commented under one of the picture some similarities to Bulb. restrepia etc. I did more research by myself and eliminated few of them but still can't find all of them...

    Bulbophyllum baladeanum J.J.Sm. - NOT? - around 2 cm flowers
    Bulbophyllum contortisepalum J.J.Sm. - NOT
    Bulbophyllum drepanosepalum J.J.Verm.andO’Byrne -NOT too small, around 2 cm colour red
    Bulbophyllum falciferum J.J.Sm. - NOT
    Bulbophyllum impar Ridl.(?,position uncertain)
    Bulbophyllum inaequisepalum Schltr.
    Bulbophyllum louisiadum Schltr.
    Bulbophyllum ngoyense Schltr. - NOT
    Bulbophyllum obovatifolium J.J.Sm. - flower about 5 cm - text in latin Nova Guinea Xii
    Bulbophyllum potamophila Schltr.
    Bulbophyllum restrepia Ridl. - NOT? - 1.5-2cm flowers, has much bigger ratio dorsal/lateral sepal

    I try email mr J.J.Vermeulen, but dont know if he would be so nice to replay, I will see...

    For now I just get this:

    "B. baladeanum and B. restrepia are indeed good guesses. It belongs to the same section but cannot be identified any closer now" J - (Jaap J. Vermeulen)

    So until its time come, it will be more likely without a name...

    Isn't this Bulbophyllum potamophila. I have seen this on a price list from Asiatic Green.

    I don't think so, Eric, here is the illustration:
    Largest online collection of New Guinea orchids

    So it is very different, but I heard that something similar to B. himantosepalum was circulated around as B. potamophilum at one point.
