This is another miniature orchid species from Ecuador and is closely related to the previous species, in fact, was once classified as a Masdevallia. I am not sure, however, that it is identified correctly. It seems that the vendors put any name at all on the different species and most of them turn out to be something else. The flowers are 2 cm tall on a 5 cm plant, and when it blooms the flowers look like little jewels. The species' name means "swollen" and refers to the flower's tails.
