Acinopetala herradurae

Acinopetala is a new name for this species which was previously classified as a Masdevallia.  It is charming species, but not as beautiful as Masdevallia lamprotyria, the species that this was supposed to be when I purchased it.  This species is small with narrow leaves 10 cm long and 4 cm flowers.  Though not very colorful the flowers are produced in abundance.  The plant is native to Colombia and Ecuador.
