*`SECTION Pedilochilus [Schlechter] J J Verm & O'Byrne 2011

Type: Bulbophyllum papuanum (Schltr.) J.J.Verm., Schuit. & de Vogel 2014

Characterized by the creeping rhizomes giving rise to pseudobulbs carrying a single, apical, persistent leaf that blooms on a single flowered inflorescence carrying a resupinate flower with the basal node of the pedicel above the attachment of the floral bract. The sepals are free, equal, 3 to 5 veined and the margins are glabrous to ciliolate. The petals have 1 vein, the midvein abaxially keeled, the margins entire to lacerate. The lip is immobile and is fused to the column foot by a thick strip of tissue that is auriculate, saccate with a small apical part overhanging the anterior margin. The column foot is thickened towards the apex and ends in 1 to 2 calli around which the lip is attached. The stelida have the upper margin with or without a small tooth. The back surface of the anther is concave and the back margin is drawn out. There are 2 to 4 pollina.

There are 33 species in this section in forests at elevations up to 3550 meters in Sulawesi, New Guinea, eastward and the western Pacific islands.

Entries below with an asterix are listed in publications by J J Vermeullen 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.
