Dalton Hooker, 1890
Lesser Sunda Island, Malaya, Sumatera; Indonesia, Thailand,
Bulbophyllum flavorubellum, J.J.Verm. & P.O'Byrne.
Phyllorkis concinna, Kuntze.
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.
