Diodonopsis anachaeta

Diodonopsis or Masdevallia anachaeta is a tiny thing, the plant only 2 cm tall and the flowers just over 1 cm.  The flowers hang over the plant like little bells and remind me of some of purple-flowered species Clematis like C. integrifolia.  The species ranges from Peru and Bolivia through Columbia and Ecuador.
