SECTION Macrobulbon Schlechter 1912

TYPE: = Bulbophyllum macrobulbum J.J. Sm. 1910

Characterized by the large sized pseudobulbs [hence the sectional name], large sized flowers on multi flowered inflorescence and the lateral sepals being connate by their anterior margins

CAUTION Vermeullen and Fischer 2014 do not recognize this section and so all its members belong in at least one other section, I am still trying to figure out what section that might be so please use these with caution.
