    Really pretty. I for some reason thought bulbophyllum putidum to be more red than yellow.

    cheers,

    Nice but I don't think that is putidum. Putidum is now synonymous with fascinator. Older usage of the name places it as synonymous with appendiculatum also.

    Yes, I just had never heard of or seen a yellow putidum. I thought that the shape of the bloom (top) was odd as well for putidum.
