Spur is not an uncommon characteristic in orchid flowers. It is defined as the hollow slender extension from the base of the lip. The purpose of the spur is to hold nectar and it varies in shape and size, solitary across all genera. However, very rarely a few orchid genera flowers possess 2-spurs.
Presented here is a Satyrium sp. and its Alba form.
