    Smile Bulbophyllum robustum

    Just opened 3 days ago, this time only one flower spike. Synonym Bulbophyllum graveolen. I like the umbel shape with diameter 7 inches from right to left. Enjoy the photos.

    Ron, I think you are correct. The photo displayed in OrchidWiz looks identical to this plant. (It doesn't show a photo for Bulbo robustum, but an Internet image search turned up lots of, likewise, essentially identical flowers. They don't seem to be synonyms, but it looks as though there are mislabeled plants "out there".)

    Cheers,

    Rob

    I just checked Kew:

    Accepted name is: Bulbophyllum graveolens (F.M.Bailey) J.J.Sm., Bull. Jard. Bot. Buitenzorg, II, 8: 24 (1912).

    Homotypic Synonyms:
    * Cirrhopetalum graveolens F.M.Bailey, Bull. Dept. Agric. Queensland 13: 33 (1899).

    * Basionym/Replaced Synonym
    Heterotypic Synonyms:
    Cirrhopetalum robustum Rolfe, Orchid Rev. 1: 175 (1893).
    Cirrhopetalum pachybulbum Schltr., Repert. Spec. Nov. Regni Veg. Beih. 1: 889 (1913).
    Bulbophyllum pachybulbum (Schltr.) Seidenf., Dansk Bot. Ark. 29: 221 (1973 publ. 1974).

    Now I also checked Bulbo robustum and this is what I find :

    Bulbophyllum robustum Rolfe, Bot. Mag. 131: t. 8000 (1905).
    This name is a synonym.
    Accepted Name: Bulbophyllum coriophorum Ridl., J. Linn. Soc., Bot. 22: 119 (1886).
