This is a fairly large Bulbo which when in bloom seeems to draw the flies, tells you something about the fragrance:poke:

Wow, that's a really impressive show of blooms :) Great photographs, too! I love bulbophyllums, but I don't grow too many of them partially becasue I'm sensitive to foul smells :)

The genus is very diverse in bloom shape and size...I am fascinated by them. I have over 80 different Bulbo/Cirr species in my collection and am always looking for more. I hope to someday write a better book on them than what is available.
