    If anyone knows what this, is I'd love to know. It is from Brazil but I have no collection data on it. At first I thought it was the ugliest Masdevallia I had ever seen, but a friend said it was a Pleuro. The flower segments are about 3/4" long and 1/8" wide at the widest. It has been blooming for months.

    Did you say you were trying to increase your Masdevallia collection?

    That is pretty cute in a very ugly sort of way.

    I was looking at Lika's flickr site and saw this same Pleurothallis. She looked at my image and confirmed that the plant was the same. So now I have a name: Pleuro. kautskyi.
