According to Wikipedia orchids are easily distinguished from other plants, as they share some very evident traits. Among these are bilateral symmetry, many resupinate flowers (upside-down, supine, facing upward), a nearly always highly modified petal, fused stamens and carpels and have extremely small seeds. They look awesomely pretty too!
