Tongue Orchid by stellaclay by 

Tongue Orchid (Bulbophyllum fletcherianum) is a rare orchid native to southern New Guinea, also known as Fletcher’s Bulbophyllum or Spies’ Bulbophyllum.

The specimen at the Tropical House, Melbourne Royal Botanic Gardens (which features in this photo) was collected in Papua New Guinea in the early 1970s by a local orchid collector, and is mounted on cork oak. As of 2011 it has flowered just four times: in 1980, 2002, 2005 and 2011.
