B.schsffleri

Eric, this species is not deciduous,the leaves are small oval with no petiole, so the leaves sit on the psuedobulbs and are easily dislodged.Section Monilibulbus, where the pseudobulbs are close together forming chains. Other well known species from this section include, ovalifolium and cernuum.

There is a strand of dried sphag moss showing in the bottom left hand corner.
