Maxillaria fletchteriana Rolfe 1913, "in situ" in Mindo, Equador


I saw this species in Mindo, Equador.   This species is native of eastern Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia.  The flowers are large, fragrant and long lasting.  I saw it at 4500 feet of altitude, at a wet forest, full of orchids of all description.
