Common Name The Beautiful Kefersteinia

Flower Size 1.6" [4 cm]

Found in Bolivia at elevations around 1100 meters as a small to medium sized, warm growing epiphyte with an erect, 1.6 to 2.4" [4 to 6 cm] long, single flowered inflorescence with 1 to 2 bracts and occurring in the spring.

Very similar to K vasquezii but P Harding keeps them separate over minor differences and they most likely are the same and if they are then this name takes precedence.
