    That's hot, Craig. I'd be tempted to call it bulbo longisepalum.

    for me is not longisepalum - has to short petals not sharp ended, but maybe it is cross with it? fe with fritillariiflorum? Lip is very similar to longisepalum but it might be some differenses - I ma not sure so -Very nice huge flower- well done!

    too large for bufordiense and petals and labellum could be just same described in longisepalum? dont they?
