Masdevallia fuchsii

Here's another species in the Saltatrices group, i.e., tubular flowers with a "belly" and hairy glands on the inside of the tube.  This species is from Ecuador and is a miniature, only 10 cm tall, with flowers that measure 4 cm each way.  With its bright colored flowers, spreading tails and sweet scent, it is a favorite of mine.
