Panmorphia sanchezii

This little plant, also known as Specklinia sanchezii or Pleurothallis sanchezii, is from Ecuador.  The Masdevallia-like leaves are about 5-6 cm tall and the flowers about 1 cm in size and are born at the base of the leaves.  It is named after the man who first collected it.  The color of the flowers apparently varies considerably, from a bright orange to brick-red.
