Bulbophyllum lobbii

syn Bulbophyllum claptonense

This flowers and the one in the previous photo are considered to be conspecific. No wonder the early collectors named them differently.

...the smaller specimen...

A variable and widespread species found all the way across SE Asia from the Indian State of Arunachal Pradesh, across to Borneo and the Philippines down to Sumatra. Compare these two plants, one labelled Bulbophyllum sumatranum and the other Bulbophyllum claptonense. Both are considered by Kew to be Bulbophyllum lobbii! Is it any wonder that they were described as different species having been found quite some distance apart. Who'd want to be a taxonomist?
