I am not entirely sure of the identification of this species. It was purchased a Trichoceros species from Peru and seems to fit best the description of Trichoceros hajekiorum. It has a rambling habit with the small pseudobulbs spaced at 3-4 cm intervals, each carrying a tiny leaf at the top of the pseudobulb and with larger sheathing leaves around the pseudobulb. The 8 cm flower spikes come from the base of the pseudobulb and carry two flowers.
