    A small Bulbo. from Papua ,New Guinea. I identified it using Schlechters' great work on Papuan orchids , the book , Bulbophyllum urosepalum PNG 022 (853x1280).jpg almost a century old now!
    As with most Bulbophyllums, the closer you look, the more interesting things you see!
    A hairy sepal, with hairs pointing in one direction, a mobile,snapping lip, petal tips reduced to antenna like structures, etc., etc.

    At first glance, the color is not very eye catching. But then I zoomed in... Wow! Super cool
