    It reminds me of my Bifrenaria Harrisoniae, but the p-bulbs look a little different and I only have pictures of what mine might flower like. You may want to look into that though as a possibility or close relative. Otherwise, good luck!

    Hello Arwan,

    I knew there was a pictures in one of my books. I didn't find the exact picture but I got an idea when I saw a picture of an Eria look-a-like. And just a quick search learned that it must be Eria coronata.
    Treasure it!

    Initially I thought Epigenium species but the spike,leaves and pseudobulb are so different, thought about Erias most of Eria never come across bifoliate type, but I think Maurice nailed it. It's Eria coronaria very nice Arwan.
