Common Name The Angled Flickingeria

Flower Size .8" [2 cm]

Found in Java in lower foothills at elevations of 250 to 500 meters as a small to medium sized, hot growing epiphyte with ribbed with age, swollen stems carrying lanceolate, obtuse leaves that blooms in the fall on a terminal, short, 1 to 2 flowered inflorescence with simultaneously opening flowers.

To be taxonomically correct within my framework this species needs a new name within Flickingeria as D angulata was used before and so becomes a nomen nudum
