Condylago rodrigoi

This species is from Colombia and was first described as Stelis rodrigoi.  The flowers, as can be seen from the photos, are very unusual.  They are only about 1 cm tall, but each spike produces a succession of them, so that the plant is seldom without flowers.  The plant itself looks like a Pleurothallis and is around 8 cm tall.  The flower spikes are unusual in that they are flattened at the ends
