    Lepanthes marthae if I am not wrong

    Probably L. effusa. Lepanthes marthae usually has brown sepals that are proportionally broader. The best way to identify L. marthae is by the column dilated at its base and the petals connate to the column well above the base.

    You are correct, and Lepanthes marthae does not occur in Ecuador.This is the previously known as Lepanthes millei, now reduced to a synonymy of Lepanthes effusa.

    I have the same plant. I found it in Carchi Ecuador around Lita. I’m also looking for a name.-Ken Tokach
