Growing in nature in Rio de Janeiro state, Brazil

This recently collected species grows on rocky slopes in full sun, sometimes in the presence of cacti.  Close-ups of the flower and of the tuber further illustrate this interesting (and as yet not formally described or named) species.  A cultivated plant can also be seen here.
