Anathallis roseopapillosa E.M.Pessoa & Valsko 2014 TYPE Drawing by E.M.Pessoa & Valsko

Common Name The Rose Spotted Anathallis [refers to the apex of the petals]

Flower Size .2" [5 mm]

Found in Amazonas state of Brazil as a miniature sized epiphyte with erect ramicauls carrying an erect, coriaceous, narrowly elliptical, acute, cuneate below into the base leaf that blooms on a few, subflexuous, successively single, few flowered inflorescence

This species would be better placed in Pleurothallis within my framework of the Orchidaceae but as yet it has not been described as such.
