    A small hot growing Pleurothallid from the Amazon lowlands.
    I dissected it and it matches perfectly with Luers' drawing, however most examples online
    look a lot more colored.
    Does anyone have a different suggestion for a name for this plant, or is it a pale
    colored form of S.picta? IMG_4402 (1024x683).jpg

    Seems to be a completely “xanthic” form. I’ve seen a few pale yellow clones, but there is usually a little red or maroon mixed in. From the photo, it does look like picta to me.
