    I like the "ram's horns" of the lateral sepals. Attractive flowers though I must admit I prefer the yellow cultivar 'Kathy's Gold'.

    Very nice Bulbo there, but it can't be lobbii. I'm with Vincent, this is getting too confusing....

    Me too Ron complicated ????? maybe need further DNA study for clarification most of the lobbii even from Pahang ( West Malaysia) they are all very nice and sweet smell , in contrast the smell of this one is terrible.
