    Got this as Bulbophyllum eberhardtii. Is it fascinator or perhaps putidum or even something else? Bulbophyllum-181221-.jpg Bulbophyllum-181221--2.jpg

    It looks like a Bulb. putidum hybrid to me. Maybe a cross with Bulb. rothschildianum or fascinator?

    Thanks Nicholas. For my part: I don't know what's the added value for making a cross between these species...

    The dark purple lip is unusual. It looks like a shortened, stripped putidum with a dark lip. It may be that it is a hybrid, but in my experience, the lip in those cases tend to be red and the red color is dominant, not purple.
