    This doesn't look like the corolliferums I have seen. They have been more or less solid dark red or yellow, and the sepals have had "dew" or moisture drops; they also have had about twice as many flowers.
    These are really nice flowers, though.

    Salam En Mazlan very nice Bulbo love the color variations there I agree with Michael I think yours are Bulbophyllum abbreviatum, there are so many color different on this species.

    Thanks for the ID En. Zainal. I was not very sure with the ID myself since the petals look a bit different from B. corolliferums in the net. Michael has nailed it correctly on the differences. Thanks to both of you and the others for looking in and commenting. .
