Cited as a synonym of Bulbophyllum pulchrum but there are some visual differences. Anyone?

CAUTION!!!! Dr Garay states "This is Bulbophyllum strangularium (Rchb.f.) J.J.Sm. 1912, Unfortunately everything is united under B longiflorum or B pulchrum by the authorities. On the other hand, B. strangularium is easily identified by the peculiar pattern of spotting on the lateral sepals"

Synonyms Cirrhopetalum strangularium Rchb. f. 1887
