    Bulbophyllum pandurella is a cute miniature from Madagascar. It is classified in section Elasmotopus. The specific epithet pandurella means "small violin or fiddle" and refers to the shape of the lip. Its clustered pseudobulbs bear two leaves and the inflorescence is single-flowered. This flower is 10 mm across.

    This species grows in lichen-rich evergreen forest and was photographed during the Orchid Conservation Alliance tour in Andasibe-Mantadia National Park. Altitude 1,095 m elevation. The habitat is refreshing, moist and cool.

    Plants eventually develop into neat specimens like this one.
