    Default Bulbo species

    this came labeled as papulosum but it is not. Papulosum has a hairy lip, therefore the name. A salty, fishy odor but not really offensive.

    I assume it is native to Borneo but not sure do to no definitive ID but there are others in this Section that come from there.

    Wow, this one is dark. Hope you get an identification. Did you happen to see Nelson's new thread. The blooms are very similar to yours: papulosum

    Cheers,

    thanks!!! very similar but not the long spike. After some research this week, I suspect mine is Bulbo levane var Levane which from some sources is known as Bulbo nymphopolitanum

    Hi Ron,

    I am of the opinion that your plant is Bulbophyllum trigonosepalum, a Philippines endemic species.

    B. levavae is an extremely rare species, which I doubt is in cultivation. It is also the smallest-flowered member of the section Lepidorhiza with blooms about 2.5 cm long.

    B. nymphopolitanum can be distinguished from B. trigonosepalum by its roughly surfaced upper surface of the labellum. The labellum surface of B. trigonosepalum is smooth as in the picture above.

    B. leysianum is considered to be a synonym of B. ornithorhynchum a member of the section Hyalosema.
