Warty hammer orchid

Warty hammer is a rather unfortunate name, but these orchids are fantastic. The labellum (the ‘hammer’) looks like a wingless female thynnid wasp and emits pheromones to attract the male wasp – when the male grasps the ‘female’ to fly off with her, the hinge on the labellum swings up and essentially whacks the pollen bundle onto the wasp’s back. If the same wasp then visits another warty hammer, it pollinates it – a brilliant system!
