Oncidium pyramidale is now considered a synonym of Oncidium ornithorhynchum.

The pink flower often labelled as Oncidium ornithorhynchum is actually Orchid (Oncidium sotoanum). This is a result of the wrong name being applied to the species for decades and only in the past few years has it been realised that the original type for the species is actually the same as Oncidium pyramidale.
