Bulbophyllum melanoxanthum is an orchid species identified by J.J.Verm. & B.A.Lewis in B.A.Lewis & P.J.Cribb in 1991. Culture information and photos for this orchid are commonly detailed under the currently accepted name of Bulbophyllum bacilliferum.
DESCRIPTION: Vermuellen & Lewis in 1991 described B melanoxanthum stating that it differed in the structure of the basal teeth of the lip: in B melanoxanthum the teeth are touching along most of the entire front margin while in B bacilliferum they only touch at the apex leaving a distinct channel between towards the base. As of now this has been found to be not enough to keep B melanoxanthum with its separate species status.
