The 'snake-headed' pleurothallid, as named by Lindley in 1838 (from Greek, ophidian = snake, cephalus = head). "...so similar to the head of a snake with the jaws open, that it is difficult at first sight to believe it is really a flower that one looks upon. To add to the deception, the small labellum is shaped like a tongue, and moves up and down when you peep into the mouth of the flower" - Lindley. July is its peak blooming time, but it blooms off and on throughout the year from the leaf nodes of both new and old leaves.Warm to Intermediate. July blooming. Species from Mexico to Costa Rica.
