Nice! Is this a hard one to bloom or did you almost lose it?
can I have it?
I want every masdevallia I see damnit!
Nice one, Jon.
Do you think this is the same species? I got is as yungienseis. I was going to wait to post these until I had time to disect a flower and get pictures of the petals and lip, but since your flower looks so simular I figured I'd ask. The flower isn't so yellow, picture was take under a warm florescent light.
They certainly appear the same, Kyle. I just looked up tricarinata in Icones Pleurothallidinarum, and it is a synonym for pleuro tripterantha. And this plant certainly isn't pleuro tripterantha. Yungienseis isn't recognized by Icones nor Kew. The closest thing is yungasensis, and neither of our plants are that.
So... neither of us has a correct tag. Anyone else care to throw an ID suggestion out there?
That sucks that niether of us know what we have. I'll get a better look at the lip and petals. I don't have any of the green books, so IDing is difficult for me. (If any one has extras of Luers green book, I would gladly buy them...)
The best I can do is look through Ecuageneras pictures for likely suspects. I've been meaning to get some better pictures with better color and sending them to Ecuagenera for a possible ID. Where did yours come from?
I got it as yungasensis (sorry for the spelling), which is obviously isn't. This one like to be cool, it didn't spike until I got it down to 14 C.
I hate NOIDs, my only comfort is knowing that this isn't a hybrid.
That is Fawesome!
It's obviously in the complex M. xanthina group. It reminds me very much of M. nivea.
Thanks Dale. I'll peruse the section in Icones to see if I can find a match.
If not, I shall call it, masdevallia fawesomia
I agree with the xanthina group, but disagree with nivea.
Masdevallia fawesomia LOL I love it!
what he said.
Damn. Wish you had asked earlier. I just sent it to someone else.
Thanks Jon <insert poking emoticon here>
