Common Name The Parahybuna Maxillaria [Brazilian Town in Sao Paulo State]

Flower Size 3/8" [1 cm]

Found in Brazil in cool shady montane forests at moderate elevations that blooms in the late spring and early summer on a short single flowered inflorescence with the flower held close to the pseudobulb.

This species can be either mounted on tree fern or potted with a tree fern mixture, given cold to cool temperatures, semi-shade and constant year round moisture.

This species is very similar to M fernandina but this one is smaller in pseudobulb size and has some minor floral differences.
