    Smile platystele stenostachia

    I'm still getting used to photographing these tiny orchids, and this one was super tiny. I'm hoping that someone will confirm the identity of this little guy. He has tiny orange blooms all under the leaves. I just don't have a lens that can capture them very well.

    This last photo is one I was able to find at the vendor's site which made me question the id. The vendor labeled this one 'cu'. Mine is 'm'.

    Cute teeny devil. Quite a large plant mass (considering how mini it is). Hmm, the photos on Jay's Encyc. show flowers that are yellow not orange -- but I don't know if they may have that much color variation. Try contacting Lynn O'Shaughnessy at that site I gave you earlier.
