This Maxillaria is from the highlands of Central America. The flower is a little over 1/2" in height. As the name suggests the color is variable in this species. I have a few different color form in my collection.

That's really red. Mine is very yellow -- it's been blooming continually for several months. Flowers are very small.

Nice close-up, Berrek.

I'll add mine to the mix. Purchased this past Spring, it's been in continuous bloom. Much smaller plant, though, and it looks like mine doesn't open up as wide as yours and Ron's.
