Beautiful! The bloom looks very narrow, I might be mistaken but Petals and dorsal look a bit bent backwards?

By comparing the flowers and the leaves.....I would say these are two different plants or at least two different flowers of the same plant at different times?

2 diff for sure. Probably 2 before photos and the bottom one with better shape and the additional spike is after. At least its real bellatulum. Sometimes people post hybrids.

Very beautiful, especially the last one! But even if I know judges won't care much for it, the Dandy with the yellow streak on top definately has his charm! :)

about 10 years ago I got a greenhouse/shade house 20m x 6m ., I was relatively new here looking for new plants.
There were people collecting and distributing orchids in Thailand nearby.
I got the rest of bellatulum in very bad shape for free. Otherwise they were just put in the rubbish pin.
Never saw this place again, too many orchids just luft on the floor .

But in the last 10 years the Thai government did a lot to improve the situation, much less offered on markets and from illegal collection.

But ........28kilo villosum are just available and others...................
