family. Species of this genus are epiphytic and contain many
pseudobulbs with several interodes. The leaves of this plant are
arranged alternatively in two vertical rows on opposite sides of the
rachis. The Clowesia has a simple gullet flower that allows for pollination by male euglossine bees. The flowers are often unisexual and contain a viscidium.
