Common Name The Wasp-Carrying Oncidium
Flower Size almost 1" [to almost 2.5 cm]
Found in SE Brazil as a small sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte
at elevations up to 1200 meters that has broadly oval to subglobose,
clustered, strongly compressed pseudobulbs carrying a single,
apical, rigid, elliptic-oblong, acute, pale green leaf that blooms
on a 4 1/2' [135 cm] long, paniculate inflorescence with many waxy
flowers occuring in the summer and fall.
Cited as a synonym of Oncidium divaricatum but due to visual
differences I am going to keep them separate for now.
