    Flower size: Lateral sepals are a little over 1cm. Dorsal sepal is about 1cm, perhaps a little less. Spike is about 8cm and thin. Flower is held just above the leaves.

    Plant size: Plant is small and clumping. Pseudobulbs are about 1.5-2cm with leaves of 5-7cm.

    Other firsthand observations: Plant is mounted on sand-blasted manzanita, though I suspect it would be happier on cork. It rambles a little bit too much to be a good basket or pot candidate.
