Common Name

Flower Size 1/8" [.35 cm]

Found in western Jalisco state on the western slope at elevations of 1000 meters as a mini-miniature sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte occuring high up in trees that blooms in the late winter

I found this species on a fallen dead tree high up on the upper branches back in the early 80's on the old mine road south of Mismaloya and east about 20 miles.
