    The second was sold to me as Cstm pileatum ' Pink' . The first one I'm not sure but it has pileatum in its bloodline and the frilled lip does suggest fimbriatum ( but where are the spots of fimbriatum).

    Thanks for the ID, I have absolutely no idea what the cross is, but I am slightly swayed towards Catasetum now than other genus, well of course, Catasetum has to queue behind Bulbophyllums...

    Cheers

    Catasetums have always been a favourite of mine since I saw my first pileatum
    in the early 70s. A local nursery here may be the first to import the catasetums from Jones & Scully of Miami( BD, I think I can mention it since the firm is no longer in business).

    After checking I am sure there's no fimbriatum in the cross but it could be a Clowesetum, most probably Clowesia rosea x Cst expansum or pileatum.

    you're the man....I'll try to see if I can grab hold of the boss of the nursery to ask for the name. I have a plant too that I bought from him. It is suppose to be a Bulbophyllum echinlabium, but it looks a somewhat off, need to clarify with him.
