Telipogon maldonadoensis Dodson & R.Escobar 1998 Photo by Fransisco Tobar and his Ecuador Orchids Website

Common Name The Maldonado Telipogon [A community in Carchi Province of Ecuador]

Flower Size

Found in Carchi Ecuador at elevations around 2200 meters as a miniature sized, cold growing epiphyte

CAUTION This flower seems to be quite close to the flower T penningtonii which Dodson lists in Native Ecuadorian Orchids Vol 5 in 2004 but is nothing like what I have listed for T penningtonii
