    Vincent I don't think that this is Bulb dennisii, just have a look the photos below, the lateral sepal they have tiny hair projection in contrast dennisii they don't.

    That is indeed surprisingly long lasting for bloom life. The flower shape is very like that of the Dockrillia/Dendrobium from Austrailia. Had you not told me it was a bulbo, I would have assumed it to be Dockrilla.

    Your second one is absolutely strange, it somehow looks like all segments are chewed off by an insect or something, just wow!
