Pleurothallis is a large genus that used to contain about 1240 species. Since 2004 this genus has
almost been halved by incorporating many species into new genera (Monogr. Syst. Bot. Missouri Bot. Gard. 95: 256. Feb 2004).
Specklinia is one of the new genera Dr. Carlyle Luer has created. If you're interested you can read more here!

altitudes of around 300-1800m.

S. rabei is best grown mounted under intermediate conditions and watered daily.
