    Here is portrait and profile of this species. The flower is about 12mm wide but the lip is about 15mm long. The plant is about 5 inches tall. Grown intermediate, shade, sphagnum moss in a terracotta pot.
    Still playing with the focus stacking process but still have some kinks.

    Thanks Kelly. I tend to go for the micro Scaphs but this flower makes me reconsider.

    It has been years since I have grown this species, but mine was no miniature.
