Botanical study of the Pale umbrella orchid Bulbophyllum longiflorum, here referred to as the Insular cirrhopetalum, Cirrhopetalum thouarsii. The plant is widely distributed, from Africa to the Indian and Pacific Islands and northern Australia. The plate shows flowers and leaves, with details of the flowers.
Plate 11 from Edwards’s botanical register…edited by John Lindley, new series v.1, (London, James Ridgway and Sons, 1838). The plate is inscribed ‘P.11’ above; and below ‘Miss Drake Delt. Pubd. by J. Ridgway, Piccadilly Feby.1 1838.’
In the associated text, the author states that: ‘This very curious plant is one of the most extensively diffused of all epiphytal Orchidaceae. I have specimens gathered in the Society Islands by Mr. Mathews, Reinwardt found it in Java, Thouars in the isles of France and Madagascar, and Mr. Cumming has lately sent it from Manilla to Messrs. Loddiges, with whom it flowered last July.’"
