(Dimension: 2030 x 1395 pixels - Counter: 1554)
Locality: Ecuador, Zamora-Chinchipe Province - East on the road from Los Encuentros toward the Condor mountains at an elevation of 1584 meters. I include this lousy photo only to document my finding of this small, but colorful species. It was along the road, and had been growing on a steep embankment which had sloughed downward to the road. The entire clump was interconnected by stolons and was growing in a very wet area. The inflorescence is only about 20 to 25 cm long.
