    So Jim, if you're still up for some more education, I'd like to take this specific species a bit further.... I received a division of what was labeled B. makoyanum and has flowers that look like this (IOSPE PHOTOS) yet other sites say this is representative of the species (IOSPE PHOTOS) and the former is a hybrid. And your opinion.... hybrid, or some variation of the species?

    Exactly, Howard. The first image is the one I have. It also happens to be in bloom as we speak.

    Mitch, you have the plant that some say is a hybrid of B. makoyanum and B. aureum? So maybe a pic... love to see yours!

    Hi Howard and Mitch,

    That plant with the short broad flowers is a hybrid called Cirrhopetalum Daisy Chain.

    The real Bulbophyllum/Cirrhopetalum makoyanum has long tubular flowers as in the second picture, that are like the spokes in a wheel.
