Found in Brazil, south and east of Minas Gerais as a miniature sized, caespitose, hot to warm growing epiphyte with an erect, stout ramicaul enveloped by 2 to 3 tubular sheaths and carrying a single, apical, narrowly-ovate-cordate, acute, abruptly narrowing below into the elongate, petiolate base leaf that blooms in the summer through winter on a short, .6" [1.5 cm] long, 1 to 3 flowered inflorescence arising from the apex of the ramicaul. This can occur for years out of the same leaf.

Hallo Raimundo
This is a beautiful image of a fine and delicate flower. The contrast of yellow and green is really lovely and fit so well together and is also beautifully seen together as if the colours compliment one another. The diversity of orchid species found really amazes me, as do the different shapes, colours and sizes. Your Pleurothallis luteola is no exception. Thanks for sharing this delicate flower. Best regards.
