Masdevallia limax

Masdevallia limax
Masdevallia limax is a small orchid from Ecuador belonging to the group of orchids known as Pleurothallids, and to the group of Masdevallias described by the name "Saltatrices." The Pleurothallids are Central and South American orchids, many of them from high altitudes, and the Saltatrices Masdevallias are those which have a kind of "belly" at the base of the tubular flowers. The name of this species, "limax," means "slug-like" and refers to the shape of the flowers.
