The inflorescence of Disperis renibractea produces flowers alternating in vertical ranks on one side of the flower stalk (the phenomenon referred to as secund). About ten flowers are produced per inflorescence.
In picture the flowers are mainly pale-coloured, the bright spots inside the hood bringing contrast, while off-white, yellow, pale mauve and some greens still combine here in a richly differentiated palette.
The lateral sepals add to the obtusely angled upper structure of the flower, the downwards central curve of the dorsal leaving two bulging eye-like openings flanking the lip, ready to morph into some zoological wonder.
