  Arachnorchis cardiochila - Parent A

This is a beautiful cross pollinated orchid - between the Arachnorchis formosa (below) and Arachnorchis cardiochila (above).  Both orchids grow in close proximity to each other and so the pollinator at times moves between the two rather than visiting each species one at a time. The forms vary between the colour and shape of the parents.  Although in these examples the red of the formosa dominate.
