[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Flower Size to almost 1" [to almost 2.5 cm]
Found in Brazil as a compact, medium sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte with compressed, suborbicular-oblong psuedobulbs carrying a single, apical, rigid, erect, oblong, acute leaf that blooms on a slender, erect or arching, flexuous, 5 to 8' [150 to 240 cm] long, loosely paniculate, many flowered inflorescence with linear-triangular, very acute floral bracts occuring in the summer and fall. Cited as a synonym of Oncidium divaricatum but there are many discrepancies so I leave them as separate species.
Synonyms Aurinocidium pulvinatum ( Lindl. ) Romowicz & Szlach. 2006; Grandiphyllum pulvinatum ( Lindl. ) Docha Neto 2006; Oncidium sciurus Scheidw. 1839

Ola Rimundo! Wonderful macro. Good sharpness. Nice natural light and colours. Well done!

Bonjour Raimundo,
Intéressante publication mais il me semble que le cadrage est trop vaste pour apprécier pleinement la finesse des détails et la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hi Raimundo,

This is a very interesting image to me, as I like the orchids that are the main subject, but I also like all the lichens growing on the bark of the tree as well. Very nice!
