catasetum tabulare

a recent bloom of the catasetum tabulare. only with two flowers but unfortunately something bored a hole through the labellum as they were about to open.
the flowers were completely perfect before i went outstation and three days later when i came back, one with full bloom but the other one busted. both the labellum had something bored into it and must have triggered the pollina to eject in one of them,

the black coloration just above the tongue like callus is actually a hole, through and through. not visible in the pic because of the black background
