  This member of the Orchidaceae family was given this name by Leslie Andrew Garay and Peter Geoffrey Taylor in 1976. It is found in northern Madagascar, growing in a rich and drained soil with some water and some sun. The pseudobulbs grow to two centimetres with five centimetre speckled leaves (hence the name). The flowers are greenish brown with a white inner with pink spots.

The genera name puzzles me. Latin clades could be 'loss' It was published by John Lindley in  Edwards' Bot. Reg. 18: sub t. 1522. 1832. The species name from Latin rose;  the colour and varigata; 'variegated'.
