`SECTION Moratii G A Fischer & J J Vermeullen in prep

TYPE = Bulbophyllum moratii Bosser 1989

Epiphyte with a stout, elongate rhizome giving rise to distant, not laterally flattened pseudobulbs carrying 2 apical, narrowly obovate leaves that blooms in the fall on a heteranthous, not thickened rachis, elongate, racemose, many flowered inflorescence with spirally arranged, resupinate flowers and floral bracts that are as long as the flowers.

This is a monotypic section from notheastern Madgascar in wet, lower montane forests at elevations of 600 to 1000 meters

Entries below with an asterix are listed in publications by J J Vermeullen etal.[2014/15] 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. If a sectional name has a "`" in front then it is a complete section with all the known species represented.
