Rodrigoa (roe-dree-GO-ah) is distinguished from Masdevallia by thinly coriaceous leaves that taper into a more or less conduplicate (folded together) leaf stalk within which the slender peduncle ascends to bear a successively few-flowered raceme. The dorsal is free from the laterals that are connected at the base and form a shallow cup. The petals are marginally callus without a descending process. The lip is variable. The species here used to be a part of Masdevallia subgenus Meleagris.
