Caption: Orchid flower (Dendrobium mohlianum). The white structure is a specialised petal called a lip. It attracts pollinators and provides them with a landing platform. It is surrounded by elongated sepals and the other petals (also elongated). This orchid is found in the mountain rainforests of the southern Pacific islands. This specimen is from the island of Vanuatu. There are more than 30,000 species of orchids worldwide, many of which are grown as ornamental flowers.
