Orchids of the genus Cryptostylis are known to maintain reproductive isolation because their flowers look and smell like females of the wasps of genus Lissopimpla. When the male wasp visits and attempts to mate with the flower, the shape of anther and stigma allows correct placement and transfer of pollen to the wasp, which then transfers the pollen to a species-specific flower that it next attempts to mate with. This prezygotic barrier that prevents inter-species cross-pollination in Cryptostylis is best explained by:
