The Toothed Bulbophyllum

Just a reminder of my horrific experience at the dentist today, which left me somewhat short of haemoglobin.

The latin name for this hot growing orchid from Section Cirrhopetalum is Bulbophyllum dentiferum. Many members in this section have highly mobile labellum and flowers arranged like a fan - see for example B. auratum and this one.
