         What do you mean by "stalked"? Is the stem visible, with long
internodes between the leaves or is it densely covered with old leaves? What
is the shape of the leaf? Any other details? Considering you say it's from
Mt.Roraima, it's most likely D.roraimae, the only species I know off from
that mt. which forms a long stem (covered with old leaves). But you never
know, sometimes these photos are mixed up and might be from another
mountain. As for the D.sp."tepuis", I've never heard of it nor seen it.

Take Care,
