Masdevallias (mas-de-VAL-ee-ah) are surely the most recognized members of the Pleurothallidinae. Broken down into 10 subgenera and 13 sections, over 500 species have been included. Named for Jose Masdeval, a physician in the court of Charles III of Spain, these account for most of the hybridizing found in the whole subtribe and where most of the AOS awards are granted. The plants have fleshy, smooth leaves in tufts. The flowers commonly have tails and the petals are small with the sepals often brightly colored, large and showy. They are found from Mexico to southern Brazil, but mostly in the Andes of Ecuador and Colombia, Peru and Bolivia. The majority require cool temperatures, but some can tolerate more intermediate conditions while others need very cold nights hovering near freezing. This points out the need to know the origin of the species when trying to accommodate its needs in cultivation.
