Common Name Devianti's Bulbophyllum [Daughter of Author Current]

Flower Size 1.4" [3.5 cm]

Found in Sulawesi in primary montane forests at elevations of 1200 to 1400 meters as a mini-miniature sized, warm growing epiphyte with 1/4 to .4" [.8 to 1.2 cm] between each loosely clustered, ovoid to almost cylindrical pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, erect, ellitpic to ovate, acute, narrowing below into the petiolate base leaf that blooms in the late spring and summer on a erect to patent, 1.6 to 2.2” [4 to 5.5 cm] long, single flowered inflorescence.

"This is part of a small group of species around B. membranifolium Hook.f.; it shares the spreading (not fused or at least contiguous) lateral sepals with B. incisilabrum J.J. Verm. & P O’Byrne, B. rugosum Ridl., and a taxon of doubtful status known as Bulbophyllum sanguineomaculatum Ridl. 1896. It differs from the first two in having a distinctly papillose top part of the lip, from the latter in having distinctly sinuous lateral juga on the ovary. The plants that we have seen of B. deviantiae are smaller than any other of the species mentioned." J J Vermeulen & O'Byrne 2008
