Common Name The Wingless Bulbophyllum

Flower Size 1.2" [3 cm]

Found in the Thailand, Indonesia, Borneo, Moluccas and Sulawesi at elevations of 400 to 1200 meters as a hot cool growing epiphyte that has delightfully scented flowers

Many sources make this species a synonym of B ecornutum but I have left them separate for now.
