All the beautiful orchids in this stamp issue have been included in the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (CITES). The fan-shaped Psygmorchis pusilla bears bright yellow flowers with brown spots. Cycnoches spp is characterized by a long, slender pseudobulb. Aerangis modesta has clusters of small white flowers that are fragrant at night. Ansellia africana is known as the Leopard Orchid and Vanda coerulea is known as the Blue Orchid. Dendrobium cruentum has a crimson-colored structure in the center of its lip. Phragmapedium kovachii's name is derived from the Greek word phragma meaning "divided," and pedion, meaning "slipper". Cymbidium ensifolium flowers only once a year. Laelia milleri is famous for its distinctive "fire engine red" color.
