Masdevallia eurynogaster

Masdevallia eurynogaster is another species in the Saltatrices group of Masdevallias.  The flowers in this group are tubular, have glandular hairs on the inside of the flower tube, and have a "belly" at the base of the flower tube.  This species is from Ecuador and blooms on lax spikes that tend to hang over the side of the pot.  The plant is about 9 cm tall and the flowers about 4.5 cm from the tips of the tails.  This is the first time I've grown and bloomed this attractive species.
