Bulbophyllum hiepii Aver. 1992 SECTION Cirrhopetalum [Lindl.] Rchb.f 1861

Plant and Flowers Photo by Dang Bui

Another Flower Photo by Philip Wojtas and his Flicker Orchid Photo Site

Common Name Hiep's Bulbophyllum

Flower Size

Found in Vietnam in evergreen lowland forests as a hot to warm growing epiphyte

CAUTION I have no way of verifying the veracity of either of the 2 vdery different orchids above. They are quite different, but Dang Bui lives where the orchid occurs so I have put it first as I have another photo confirmation from there. I am not even sure of the Section which if correct would put the 2nd orchis by Philip Wojtas the more likely correct orchid.
