Abstract: Three new miniature or- chids are recorded for Orchids of Vietnam from Phu Quoc National Park: Bulbophyllum physocoryphum SEIDENF., Bulb. tenuifolium (BLUME)LINDL. and Oberonia griffithiana LINDL. These three species are new locality records for Vietnam. Data about ecology, phenology, distribution are provided as well as photo plates.
Bulbophyllum physocoryphum Seidenf. was recorded previously by L. AVERYANOV in Gia Lai province - AVERYANOV (2018). This species before could only be found in Thailand and Cambodia.
This miniature yellow-pale green species was found growing as an epiphyte on a tree trunk from basal half of rough trunks where there are many mosses, high humidity at primary evergreen broad-leaved forests; altitude around 380 to 540 m asl.; fl owering in January; very rare.
Bulbophyllum tenuifolium (Blume) Lindl. was found growing as an epiphyte on small high branches or rarely on the apical part of tree trunks in primary evergreen broad-leaved forest, sometimes along streams, altitude around 370 to 540 m asl.; fl owering in January; rare.
