A compact medium large epiphyte with bright yellow flowers that reach 6,5 to 9 cm. This species is also known as “Orchid of the Sun” and occurs on rocky slopes in Peru at a hight of 3000 meter and more. It has been discovered by Walter Davis who found it near Cusco in 1873. It is described by Reichenbach, who named it after the collector. Several hybrids have been made with Masdevallia davisii, including M. Aquarius and M. Goldbug. This orchid needs a cool, shady and moist environment with lots of fresh air. It grows well in a fine bark medium.
