    Default Cirrhopetalum geminatum

    Hi,

    this species was confused as Cirrhopetalum (Bulbophyllum) biflorum, and Jim Cootes pointed it out already in 2001 that the Philippine species differs from biflorum, but no material was available. Dr. Wolfgang Rysy compared those two and actually found the original drawing of C.geminatum.
    The main differences in C.geminatum lie in the habitus, the slightly smaller flowers, the labellum and other things.

    Cheers,
