Thick Spurred Bulb-Leaf Orchid is an epiphytic orchid found in Eastern Himalayas, up to altitudes of 2000 m. It is a small sized, cool to warm growing orchid with conical, smooth pseudobulbs. They carry a single, apical oblong, obtuse, or shortly mucronate, petiolate and thickly leathery leaf. The plant blooms on an erect, 15-20 cm long, inflorescence enveloped with oblong floral bracts and many flowers held next to the pseudobulb. It is very similar to Bulbophyllum careyanum but differs in the small stelidia on the column that point forward and the broad "U" shape of the labellum.
