Paphiopedilum is called the lady’s slipper orchid, or Venus slipper, because of its pouch-like labellum, which is designed to trap insects. To escape, the insects will have to climb back up out of the pouch, collecting and depositing pollen along the way. Paphiopedilum fowliei is a semi-terrestrial slipper orchid endemic to the island of Palawan. Due to deforestation and loss of habitat, this species is critically endangered.
