Plant and flowers in situ Ecuador Photos by Fransisco Tobar and his Ecuador Orchids Website

Common Name Octavio's Telipogon [Ecuadorian Orchid Enthusiast current]

Flower Size

Found in southern Colombia and northeastern Ecuador at elevations around 3200 to 3300 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
