    I can't get you to the genus or the species epithet but it sure looks like it belongs in the Pleurothallid group.

    Looks more like bulbophyllum, could be Bulb. carunculatum, from the picture, I think the flower is not in full bloom yet.

    Hi Robert,

    Your plant looks like Bulbophyllum restrepia, which was named by Robert Ridley in 1907.

    Hi Jim, thank you for the Id. A visiting friend came and confirmed the name. I have also successfully pollinated it with its own pollens, still months to go before it ripe.
