Buccella dynastes

Bucella is another genus that has been recently separated from Masdevallia (2006), though the name certainly has not taken hold and many still refer to this plant as Masdevallia dynastes.  It is from Ecuador and is supposed to be somewhat temperature tolerant.  It is one of the smaller "Masdevallias," about 10 cm tall with upright flower spikes that are about as long as the leaves.  The flowers themselves are 1 cm in size.
