B. Ophry’s orchid

The male bee pseudocopulates with it and during this process of pseudocopulation, the pollen grains are dusted on the body of male bees.
With such pollen dusts, male bee pseudocopulates to another flower of the same species and pollination takes place.
Sexual deceit is the process in which petal of orchid flower bears an uncanny resemblance to the female of the bee in size, colour and markings to attract the male bee for pollination.
