Dear Russ,

Your award 20082881 Bulbophyllum auriculatum has been confirmed as Bulbophyllum lobbii by the SITF with the assistance of Doris Jensen(Dec 2008). This is “just” as very red form of lobbi. Some experts would divide this group up depending on colors and other characteristics but our expert chose to give us this name and we are going with it. the name auriculatum is not correctly (legally) applied to this form as the name is used on another species totally unrelated, but in the trade this plant is often labeled with this name. As you gave this plant an HCC the award can go now be processed, if the team agrees with continuing with the award (which we at SITF think you should).

Patricia Harding, SITF chair
