This Bulbophyllum is in principle an illegal orchid to have. However, I have legally obtained it from one of the many German orchid orchards that sell it.

As can be seen, it was first described in 2017, it is one of the newest species in that genus. It was first discovered back in 2010, when it was believed to be a new species. But why should it be illegal?
