Common Name The Narrowly Elliptical Bulbophyllum [refers to the lip]

Flower Size 3/5" [1.5 cm]

Found in Thailand and Myanmar as a small sized, cool to warm growing epiphyte with a single apical leaf that blooms in the winter and spring on a basal, 8" [20 cm] long, to 15 flowered inflorescence.

Cited by some authors to be a synonym of B nigrescens but I feel there are sufficient differences to keep them separate.
