Bulbophyllum nanobulbon Seidenfaden 1973 publ. 1974 SECTION Cirhopetalum Lindley 1824 Drawing by Seidenfaden and The Swiss Orchid Foundation at the Jany Renz Herbaria Website.

Common Name The Small Pseudobulb Bulbophyllum

Flower Size .8" [2 cm]

Found in Malaysia as a mini-miniature sized epiphyte with a woody rhizome with .08" [2 mm] between each small, round pseudobulb carrying asingle, apical, erect, broadly elliptical, obtuse, leaf that blooms on a basal, erect, 1" [2.5 cm] long, few flowered inflorescence .

Kew puts this one as a synonym of B gracillinum but I just do not see that with Seidenfaden's Drawing so I have left them separatae pending better references.

Synonyms Bulbophyllum microbulbon (Ridl.) Ridl. 1907; Cirrhopetalum microbulbon Ridl. 1896
