    Branka, I have a plant labelled M trinasutum, but both leaves and flowers look different to your plant. So I had a look at IOSPE for both trinasutum and wendlandii and that didn't clear things up. Do you know how those two plants are distinguished? For reference, a picture to my plant: https://picasaweb.google.com/1002723...33577166821586

    This is a hard color to capture. Outstanding!

    Very pretty plant that is new to me.

    Well, just don't know what to say Lars. I've read that both smell like cinnemon. Both have highly succulent leaves. I think small differences can be observed in the morphology of the flowers, but I don't know which are they. I compared the one and the other, and I'm not sure any more that mine is M.trinasutum ...

    Lars and Branka, the flowers are similar, but quite easy to see the differences if you have both plants in front of you. The leaf shape is different from each other also. Wendlandii has "almost round" leaves while trinasutum has longer and narrower leaves. I grow both species, including the rare alba form of wendlandii but I can't remember if the fragrance is different, and none of my plants are in bloom now.
    PS, wendlandii will bloom more than once a year. I keep my plants drier in winter. Cool and/or wet can kill those plants easily.

    For what it's worth, there is this note in Orchidwiz: "KEW: Mrclm. trinasutum is accepted species for Mrclm. wendlandii"
