  1. Psychopsis

    Psychopsis, abbreviated Psychp in horticultural trade, is a genus of only four species of orchids distributed from the West Indies and Costa Rica to Peru, where it grows on the trunks and branches of trees. It used to be contained in the massively paraphyletic "wastebin genus" Oncidium. The monotypic Psychopsiella is closely related to and sometimes merged with Psychopsis. The genus as a whole is commonly called butterfly orchids, but some species of other orchid genera are also called thus. The Psychopsis flower looks like a large butterfly with a brightly colored body, very long antennae-like petals, and outspread wing-like dappled yellow and brown sepals. The butterfly orchid is rumored to have started the European "Orchidmania" of the 19th century. In the narrow sense, Psychopsis consists of 4 species: ⁕Psychopsis krameriana ⁕Psychopsis papilio ⁕Psychopsis sanderae ⁕Psychopsis versteegiana
