Corazonae was coined by me, but the name isn't published yet either. I do not know how that name got circulated. But the way things are going, I think I would delay its publication until such time I have found more convincing differences that would separate it from B. fascinator.
I do not know if the 'alba' designation has been published either; most likely it is just an horticultural name. As for the 'semi-alba', I find that name somewhat annoying since a plant can either be an albino or not. If a flower is pale but still has traces of anthocyanin pigments, then it doesn't deserve any status.
So for now, let's all just call these plants as Bulbophyllum (or Mastigion) fascinator.
