Common Name The Densely Flowered Bracisepalum

Flower Size 1.2" [3 cm]

Found in central Sulawesi in mossy montane forests on trunks and branches of mossy trees at elevations of 1600 to 2000 meters as a small sized, cool growing epiphyte with clustered egg-shaped, smooth pseduobulbs carrying a single, apical, erect, elliptic, obtuse, gradually narrowing below into the petiolate base leaf that blooms in the fall on an erect to arching, densely 8 to 30 flowered inflorescence arising on a newly developing growth and carrying lily scented flowers

The major difference between this species and B selebicum is the longer spur in B densiflorum.
