Bulbophyllum trichoglottis Ridl., 1909

I really happy when to see photo this orchid. So the lost ID orchid from Peninsula Malaysia be able recovery soon. This specimen often labelling as B. hirtulum, but it is wrong, they labelling due just have a little bit similarity and same section from Bulbophyllum section Hirtula. Thanks for Mr. Ahmat Mamat to allow use his photo for determining the right ID. He collected specimen from Perak.
