Common Name The Tjadasmalang Bulbophyllum [City in Java]

Flower Size 1/4" [6.5mm]

Found in Java and Sumatra on tree trunks at elevations around 1000 meters as a miniature sized, warm growing epiphyte with conical, erect, close set pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, elliptic, obtuse, mucronate, abruptly narrowed basally leaf and blooms in the fall on a basal, short to .2" [5.5mm] long, slender, single flowered inflorescence with tubular floral bracts

J J Vermuellen in 2015 has put this species as a synonym of B mucronatum but I have left them sepoarate at this time
