Caption: This video footage shows pollen removal from Angraecum cadetii by the raspy cricket Glomeremus. Pollen is removed when the insect retreats from the second flower. Footage was shot by Claire Micheneau, a Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew-associated PhD student studying how the epiphytic orchid genus Angraecum has adapted to different pollinators on Reunion Island.
