    Default Masdevallia pteroglossa

    This species is known only from the Western Cordillera of Colombia (1600-1800m). It was first collected by Consul Lehmann in 1883 in the Department of Cauca, Colombia, but it was not published until 1920 by Schlechter.

    Plant size 3-4cm. The flowers are 1cm wide with 3cm long tails. It is best grown mounted in high humidity and 12-22ºC.
