Common Name The Chinbone Bulbophyllum - In Australia The Red Horntail Orchid
Flower Size 1 to 2 1/2" [2.5 to 6 cm]
Found in penninsular Malayasia, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, the Sulawesi, New Guinea, the Philippines, the Solomon Islands and Australia as a small sized, hot growing epiphyte on tree trunks at elevations of sealevel to 800 meters in stunted woodlands and has tapered, unifoliate pseudobulbs with an ovate to elliptic, leathery leaf and blooms on an erect, single flowered, 6" [15 cm] long inflorescence that holds the leaf just below or at leaf height.
CAUTION This species, B blumei and B masdevalliaceum have all been as separate species by most authors, Verm, O'Byrne and Lamb 2015 have put them all together and I agree as there are so few differences that need major magnification to even be aware of.
