    Default Mislabeled Masdevallia, need ID

    Hello everyone,

    I have this Masd. that was labeled davisii which I believe is wrong. The people were I got this from told me it was from Peru. Flowers have a very unpleasant (really stinky) scent.

    Any help on the ID will be greatly appreciated

    Thanks Bruce,

    I did some research and it looks like this is a Masd. civilis. Hopefully your friend can help us confirm this or if it's not a civilis find the proper ID.

    I asked Ron Rayher about it, but he hasn't gotten back to me just yet. After looking around on the net, I agree about civilis as well.

    Here is a shot I found online:

    I know Ron-NY, and I know he grows Bulbos but not so much Masdy. How is Rono doing, Bruce? I bet he is still working on his summer house by the lake...

    Probably. I messaged him on Facebook. He has not been around here much, but always seems to help out when someone needs an identification. I believe in addition to all of his bulbos, he also grows some max and a few masdy. and pluros.
