Common Name The Sack-Like Stenia [refers to the lip shape]

Flower Size 2" [5 cm]

Found in Ecuador at elevations of 800 meters as a miniature to small sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte with fan-shaped leaf clusters with narrow to broadly oblanceolate, abruptly acute at the obtuse apex, attenuate below into the conduplicate, petiolate base leaves that blooms on 1 to several successive, axillary, pendant, slender, terete, 1" [2.5 cm] long, single flowered inflorescence.

CAUTION I have no way of being sure of this determination as the photo is just not that good.
