this bulbophyllum has bizarre 1-1/2" flowers that look more like little animals than plants, and smell like cherry cough syrup ; greenish-bronze sepals and petals are covered with red spots; lateral sepals are swept back while the dorsal sepal and petals curl towards the black lip which rocks both side-to-side as well as back and forth; freely branching rambling rhizome produces 1" bulbs which are topped by a single 5" long narrow leaf
