Bulbophyllum lamingtonense

Cream rope orchid

This epiphytic orchid grows in the rainforests of Lamington National park.

It consists of creeping rhizomes with inconspicuous well separated pseudobulbs and succulent leaves to 80 mm by 20 mm. Each flower grows on a short stem. The flower is about 8 mm across and is yellowish with a orange brown labellum.

This orchid is superficially similar to Bulbophyllum schillerianum, but Bulbophyllum schillerianum has orange flowers with succulent rounded sepals.

This orchid is very similar to Bulbophyllum shepherdii but can be distinguished by by its well spaced pseudobulbs, rhizomes hanging free and its much darker flowers.
