Miltoniopsis’ showy blossoms are flat and wide, the broad sepals and petals come in many colors. These two Miltoniopsis cv. are fairly bright pink.

The large, spreading lip bears small horns at its base that curl up around the column.  Notice the variation of colors radiating from the lips’  base [‘waterfall’ patches.]

Although the flowers are similar, Mitoniopsis differs from Miltonia by having one leaf to each pseudobulb, and a lobed column that is united to the labellum through a keel. In addition, the column is not concave at the base.
