Default bulbophyllum purpuraceum?

Hi all,

I bought this under the above name but can find no info about it or even if this plant exists and unfortunately the place I bought it are rather useless.
The flower has formed similar to Bulbophyllum purpurascens but is yellow instead of white. The leaves have a characteristic 'purple' line running down the centre.


Has any one heard of Bulbophyllum purpuraceum before?
Could this a cross of Bulbophyllum purpurascens and something else?

Sorry for the lo res image, it was taken on my phone.

Cheers

It looks like a bud of Bulbo. Purpurascens.
The flowers become white when they open.

Unfortunately I think it may have been damaged or some bug may have got to the petals before I could photograph it. It has stayed very yellow though and has not turned white.

Bulbophyllum purpurascens are not pure white. They are an off-white/white with yellowish tinge.

The "purpurascens" in the name is referring to the purple pigmentation from the presence of anthocyanin on the underside of the leaves for anyone wondering.
