Blooming now - and I am really bummed out

Coelogyne mayeriana grows in Malaysia, Sumatra, Java and Borneo. Hot growng, fragrant, tropical. I was really looking forward to this plant blooming.

If you know Coelogyne mayeriana or clicked on the link you can see that this is definitely *NOT* Coelogyne mayeriana. But the tag says it is.

Last August I got a large plant and took it apart after finding minimal roots when I repotted. I ended up with three plants and three backbulbs. I was excited to get a new Coelogyne species.

The good news is that I don't have this species(?). It looks very familiar and I will very likely see one at POE. Identifying it will not mean that I click through the many Coelogyne pictures online.
