    Thanks for replying.
    It was seen in the wild in Eastern Thailand. Wallichii has flat spatular shaped flowers - the flowers on this one as you can see are cyrindrical. Still not had any positive I.D. from anyone.

    In 'Orchid Genera in Thailand VIII Bulbophyllum Thou.' has one species could fit your pictures. It's called Bulbophyllum rugosisepalum. You could start on that.

    That is the only name that has come up before! The problem is that I have searched the net for some images and for some reason I can not find a picture of it anywhere!

    I did say that the name had come up before - which was your contribution 'piotrm' but as I say could not find a image to match up. Your the only two that have come up with a possible I.D. - from eight different forums!
