Common Name or Meaning The Small Flowered Pseudohexadesmia

Flower Size 1/8"

Found in Brazil, said to be a synonym of Scaphyglottis micrantha but that species has a single, sessile flower and this species has an elongate inflorescence with several racemose flowers. Also the plant habit of having pseudobulbs that do not have pseudobulbs arising from the apex is not a Scaphyglottis habit. Obviously it is not a Scaphyglottis, Anyone up on what this Brazilian plant is called and to what genus it belongs as this genus is not valid as Breiger in 1976 did not write the description correctly so it is not accepted.
