Trisetella klingeri

I am not sure of the identification of this species  It was supposed to be Trisetella sororia, which it most definitely is not.  It may be Trisetella klingeri, from Ecuador, but it may also be just a form of the variable and widespread Trisetella triglochin.  The plant is tiny, like most Trisetellas, only about 3-4 cm tall, and the flowers, born on 6 cm spikes are about 1 cm in size.  By any name, however, it is a cute miniature, and worthy of a place in any collection of miniature orchids.
