    Recent changes in the lobbii complex.

    Bulbophyllum claptonense
    . Rolfe 1905:198 – Bulbophyllum lobbii Lindl. var. claptonense Rolfe 1904: 213.
    Distribution: Endemic to Borneo. Mixed, tall forest, from 800-1000m.

    Differs from B.lobbii by the presence of a distinct callus on the adaxial side of the lip.
    B.claptonense shows little variability. Therefore it has been raised to species level. B.claptonense1.jpg B.claptonense a flavum variant2..JPG

    Two old images of mine are shown here: the typical type and another one that is thought to be a flavum variant of the species.

    I love this variation of yellow color. It should not be very common.
