    Hello, this is my first post on the UBC Botanical Garden.

    I'm a Binghamton University student and I am taking Bio 370; Botany. In lecture my professor mentioned Puedocopulatory Orchids which, according to what I recall, are orchids that mimic the hormones of male orchids in order to get wasps to pollinate them. I didn't get to write down the notes because he went faster than I could write and I have an older version of the class textbook that doesn't seem to talk about these orchids to much.

    So in total, where can I find more information about puedocopulatory orchids? (Google drew a blank)

    Try Pseudocopulatory in your searches instead.
