    Thanks everyone for your help. I have however had it ID'd and it is Bulbophyllum rothschildianum var carnea. For all interested I will post another photo of Cirrhopetalum "Louis Sander", another stinker, but so sweet.
    Cheers

    Wow, that looks fantastic. I think the detail on these plants is amazing. when you say you got ripped off, was it bad? I don't really know anything about bulbos, nor about relative costs.

    Based on Kew's list, var carnea is not accepted as separate. I would just list it as rothschildianum.

    I meant I was ripped off because I thought I bought one thing and now have something completely different. Not that upset by it, as I like this one a lot, but sometimes it is better to buy things in flower!!! he he
