    I always think this one is a bit electric because of the neon... petals? I don't know my lepanthes anatomy.

    The flower is a little under 2mm laterally.

    Fancy!
    I believe it is jayandellii, actually.
    I was wondering what the flowers looked like up close, thanks.

    Kew says jayandella. So does Icones Pleurothallidinarum XIX.

    You really think your silly books and orchid database are more accurate than the semi-legible pencil scrawl on my tag??!!?? :eek:

    Pffttt.....I need some *real* evidence before I change my tag.

    Thanks everyone.

    It's funny that the source of the plant (J&L), which is probably where the name came from, can't even spell it right. My tag says jayandellii also.
