Common Name The Small Striped Bulbophyllum

Flower Size .2" [5 mm]

Found in Malaysia and Borneo in lower to upper montane mossy forests on mangroves and along rivers as a mini-miniature sized, hot to ccol growing epiphyte with .4" [1 cm] between each, upwards curving from the base, cylindric pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, erect, evenly elliptical, shortly acute and petiolate base leaf that blooms on a [2.4" [6 cm] long, single flowered inflorescence

The first photo by Peter O'Byrne best represents the species, the other 2 photos have an elongate, apically thickened, non hairy lip which does not appear to be this species.
