Encyclia cochleata by Doris.L: The national flower of Belize, now known as Prosthechea cochleata, has flowers which are unusual in that though the labellum is usually below the column in the orchids, in the members of Prosthechea the labellum forms a "hood" over the column. This makes the flower effectively upside down, or non-resupinate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prosthechea_cochleata #Orchids
