LATE EARLY

Common Name Thydo's Bulbophyllum

Flower Size .6 to .8" [1.5 to 2 cm] long

Found in Vietnam at elevations around 1800 to 2000 meters as a small sized, cool growing epiphyte.

"Bulbophyllum thydoii resembles Bulb. umbellatum and Bulb. elatum . It differs by the synanthous inflorescences (heteranthous in Bulb. umbellatum and Bulb. elatum), and by the petals which do not touch the lateral sepals proximally (overlapping with the lateral sepals in Bulb. umbellatum and Bulb. elatum). In addition, Bulb. thydoii has larger flowers than Bulb. umbellatum (median sepal .6 to .8" [15 to 20 mm] long, versus ca. .36" [9 mm] long)." Vuong, Q.T.Truong, J.Ponert & J.J.Verm. 2019
