    Default Dimerandra emarginata

    Hi

    A little Dimerandra emarginata is an orchid very unobtrusive, without much beauty. The plants of this species have long, narrow leaves, petals and labellum slim with a thin callus with tubercles arranged irregularly. Which is distributed from Mexico to Colombia. Abundant in moist forests in the Atlantic zone of Nicaragua, 0-700 m, flowering from December to May.

    Look at the upper labellum ... looks like a obese lady almost naked......or maybe my eyes deceive me....? She shows until her navel...





    This is another of its miniature flowers .... has an incision in two petals ... the first no.

    You're right Ana. I can almost hear the fat lady singing.

    Default Great photo.

    Despite obesity, I think it is an elegant bloom. Just not showy.
