    I acquired that plant last year to replace a lost (real) Masd prodigiosa. The result disappoints, but plant still has some charm. The closest resemblance with I have seen is Masd dalessandroi. However, it is just a resemblance. Any suggestions, what it could be? Thanks,

    Don't overlook the possibility that it could be a hybrid. Where did you get it? I don't think it is M. dalessandroi. All the dalessandroi I have seen are fuller shapes.

    I got it from local vendor, who brought Peruflora "leftovers" from one of the East Cost shows. Plant has Peruflora's tag, ...but plants and tags passed trough many hands on their way from Peru to here.

    Thanks for a hint Marni! Perhaps, I shall search Peruflora's website. Wish that site could be better organized.

    Alexey, send Manolo Arias an email with this picture. There are other some other things from Peru (M astrotricha comes to mind but reflexes very noticeably) that it may be.

    It looks a bit cloesii /xanthina-ish. I have one just like that.
