Description

Psychopsis papilio, or butterfly orchid, also known as Oncidium papilio, is a flower in the family Orchidaceae, native to South America. It derives its name from its distinctive bright orange and yellow flowers, whose shape is reminiscent of the wings and antennae of a butterfly. Its purplish green mottled leaves give this orchid additional ornamental interest.
