Another photo may be seen here, and that of the base species here.  It is not clear just how 'Tiny Red' differs from the base species.  At one point, 'Tiny Red' was distributed as a hybrid, Achimenes 'Tiny Red'.  An antique print from 1797 is one of the earliest representations of gesneriads in the botanical literature, and nicely captures the species.
