This epiphytic member of the Orchidaceae family was described by Joseph Dalton Hooker in 1890. It is found in Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore, growing in old secondary forest with lots of water and little sun. The pseudubulbs will grow to 2,3 centimetres in diameter, the leaves to 18 centimetres length. The flowers are light yellow.

The species name is derived from the Greek bolbos meaning 'bulb' and phyllon, 'a leaf', referring to the pseudobulbs on top of which the leaf grows. The species name means 'beautiful, harmonic, tasteful'.

This might not be considered a caudiciform, but here it is anyway.
