The basal node of the pedicel is level with the attachment of the floral bract. There are 2 pollina but if there are 4 the inner ones are shorter than the outer ones [B ionophyllum and B sopoetanense] and can be with or wothout a single stipe.

There are about 66 species in this section occuring in forests up to 2500 meters in elevations in India, China, Taiwan, eastward to the western Pacific, Thailand, penninsular Malaysia, Sumatra, Java, Borneo, the Philippines and Sulawesi.

Entries below with an asterix are listed in publications by J J Vermeullen and so are more likely correct than ones without. Species with a question mark in front, seem to me to not conform and so please use with caution.

According to Vermeullen 2014 there are too many species within this section as to which ones do not belong, I await more information
