Bulbophyllum (C.) fascinator
Bulbophyllum (C.) fascinator Rolfe 1908 inhabits Laos, South Vietnam, and possibly Thailand and Malaysia. There is discussion (Seidenfaden 1972) stating B. fascinator may be a tetraploid form of Bulbophyllum (C.) putidum. Hobby acceptance is for two separate species. The species epithet fascinator is correct either as a Bulbophyllum or as a Cirrhopetalum. Because of the peleae on the dorsal sepal and the petals, we prefer C. fascinator. A prolific bloomer, with flowers up to 8" in length. This species blooms variably throughout the year, with late summer as the period with the most blooms.
