Part Shade Warm LATE Fall

Common Name or Meaning Naresh Bahaduri's Dendrobium

Flower Size 1 to 1.4" [2.5 to 3.5 cm]

Found in Arunchal Pradesh India at elevations around 600 meters as a small sized, warm growing epiphyte with erect to spreading, fractiflex, several noded cane-like pseudobulbs enveloped by several inflated, just overlapping sheathe and carrying 2 to 4, towards the apex, narrowly oblong, suberect, thinly leathery leaves that blooms in the fall on a slender, pendulous, arising from the nodes near the apex of the stem, 4 to 6" [10 to 15 cm] long, 3 to 10 flowered inflorescence

Most likely within my framework this species would be best placed within Diplocaulobium but as of now it has not been described as such.
