Dresslerella lasiocampa

photographed by Alexander Koper 

Dresslerella lasiocampa found growing in high elevations of Peru and Ecuador (1500 - 1800m) is another example of a lovely cool growing miniature plant found in these regions.

The genus was named after the prominent investigator of orchids, Robert Dressler.

The flower is only about 1cm big, growing out of basal sheaths. Blooming usually in spring.
