The profile of the Huttonaea oreophila flower shows the lip and petals as shallow scoops, their long fringes protruding far. The pale green ovary in its even paler bract is holding all of the floral flourish up at a jaunty angle. Bits of sepal protrude behind. The bract is shorter than the ovary (www.africanorchids.dk; www.orchidspecies.com).
