Close relatives. Have glaucophyllum in bud and will add that for comparison shortly.

1st both, 2nd liemanianum, 3rd moquettianum

Great flowers, the both of them. They seem to be first flowering plants and the flowers are relative big compared to the plant size especially the P. liemianum (sorry for correcting your spellings) or is it just the perspective of the photos ?

The leimianum had a near death experience and this was a soloniferous offset. The main plant died, so single growth, first blooming. Main plant was somewhat larger, near the size of the moquettianum. Size of plants is larger than they appear in the photos compared to the flowers. Pretty wide angle lens.

Nicely grown. My liemianum did the same thing, nearly died but put out two new growths, both happy and healthy now.
