    OMG. I want that. Bad.

    Reminds me of malleolabrum, but it isn't.

    Bulbophyllum globuliforme. Cf. Bulbophyllums and Their Allies - Siegerist.

    "Dale - Are you really sure about B. globuliforme?"

    No, I'm not. The description seemed to fit, though.

    It is not globuliforme, which nearly doesn't have leaves and has reddish inflorescence. A bit similar to Bulb. similissimum and Bulb. physocoryphum, but both much too big and slightly different from this super mini one! so small I know only nematocaulon, which has white inflorescense and white flower, but it is different section... so still not this:

    Very nice! I like yours very much and have feeling I saw very similar one somewhere but cant find it now... ;-(

    Definitely not B. globuliforme because as Piotrm states " leaves and has reddish inflorescence". This is the picture I have of B. globuliforme from my want folder (not my pics so I cannot take credit for them)

    I think epiphyte might be onto something though

    BTW...I agree with Jon: I want it BAD!

    Definitely a colour variant of Bulbophyllum moniliforme. The leaves are entirely different to B.globuliforme.

    I would also consider Bulbophyllum simplicilabellum.

    I agree with Chuck-NH. I must confess I have never seen this previously. Although very similar to moniliforme which has pseudobulbs closely packed together forming mats.

    On reflection, I believe this to be Bulbophyllum globuliform
