Bartholina is an orchid genus.
A member of the Fynbos plant kingdom, Bartholina is also known as the "Spider Orchid". The common name comes from the array of fine feather-like petals that surround the flower resembling the legs of a spider.
The genus is named after the seventeenth century Danish scientist Thomas Bartholin.
