    Default Bifrenaria species ???

    This is labeled tyrianthina but I think not. It is one that is blooming in Glen's collection. I would love to ID it and hopefully will get a division when it is repotted. Any ideas?? The p-bulbs are about 3.5 - 4.5" tall topped by a 9-10" single leaf, the spike is about 15" tall It has a spicy fragrance.

    From what I have seen it is not a species but a hybrid

    Murry, I have had many people search for me and I think we have decided it is Bifrenaria tyrianthina var. magnicalcarata. There sure seems to be great variance in this species. I did a google image search and came up many different pics of this species and it amazed me how different they are.

    Here is pic that looks like this one Orchid Species Photographs - Bifrenariatyrianthina3.jpg
