Abstract: The floral fragrances of six orchids (Stanhopea lietzeii Frost ex Hooker, S. Insignis Frost ex Hooker, Polystachya estrellensis Hook. Psilochilus modestus Barb. Rodr., Epidendrum secundum L and E. paniculatum) from the Atlantic rain forest were investigated, attempting to link the floral fragrance composition to the rewards (pollen, nectar, pseudopollen and fragrant oil). From this evaluation we conclude that in most pollinations, the attraction could not be assigned to one compound or class of compounds but to the "bouquet" that is an ensemble of compounds belonging to different compound classes.
