    Could this be an Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' or 'Jean'? Not sure how you distinguish between the two?

    I don't have the Jean but I do have the Buckleberry and mine has a darker red color then what I see in this great picture of what you have, that is not to say it is either one as I can not say that not having the Jean. I am sure there is someone out there that can possibly give a definite answer.

    I think this is more likely Bulbo. longissimum, one of the parents of Elizabeth Ann.

    I'll go with Kirk on this. BTW great shots! I'm also posting a picture of a cross of Bulb longissimum x annandalei named Bulb Eed.

    Also concur with everyone that your photo is longissimum. I'm attaching a recent photo when I had a Bulbophyllum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS and B. longissimum in bloom at same time. Think this shows the umbel and color difference between these two.
