Buccella dynastes

Also known as Masdevallia dynastes, this small species is from Ecuador.  The flowers are 2 cm from end to end and the plant 10 cm tall.  It blooms faithfully late winter or spring, but seems to prefer being mounted since the plant tends to grow up out of a pot.  It is said to be temperature tolerant but my plant is grown with other cool-temperature orchids.
