Abstract: Two new Bulbophyllum species from Peninsular Malaysia are dedscribed and llustrated: Bulbophyllum jayjayveeanum (sect. Rhinanthera) and Bulbophyllum nazrii (sect. Monanthaparva).
Bulbophyllum jayjayveeanum is unique in the section in the ovary being much longer than the pedicel, and the lateral sepal margins being erose near apex. It also differs from Bulbophyllum turpe J. J. VERM. et P. O’BYRNE in having a very crowded rachis, lateral sepals less than 7 mm long, a column with a small rounded tooth on each margin, and a column-foot with a rounded apex that lacks a raised tooth.
Bulbophyllum nazrii differs from Bulbophyllum comberi J. J. VERM. in having a retrorse uncinate tooth on the column wing, a stigma with a protruding basal margin, a lip that lacks cilia and has irregularly pectinate margins, and broad-lanceolate petals.
