Genera or species names that are synonyms of current names are denoted with a ~.

The basiosynonym of a species is denoted with a "*". The basiosynonym is the very first name that a species had before it was changed to the current species name. If you have a name in parenthesis preceding another name, the name in parentheses is the basiosynonym. An example: ~*Ophrys bicolor Naegeli - See Ophrys apifera var. bicolor (Naegeli) Nelson: Ophyrs bicolor is the basiosynonym and in the current name the parentheses, (Naegeli), is the namer of the basiosynonym, while Nelson is the namer of the current species Ophyrs apifera var. bicolor.

If a genus is complete [all of the species are represented] it is preceded by a `

! denotes the Type Species of the genus

* denotes the basionym or original name with the same species taxon

I have decided to include synonyms in the alphabetical listings because I have found it frustrating to find that some growers do not stay currrent in their plant names and as such we the consumer end up buying a plant that we feel is an exotic different species only to find that it is a plant that we have had for years under the correct name. An example, Brassavola rhopalorrhachis Rchb.f is actually the common species Brassavola nodosa [L]Lindley.

Acanthephippium Blume ex Endl. 1828 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE ? SUBTRIBE Collabiinae

There are 11 terrestrial or rarely lithophytic species in tropical Asia, Malaysia and out to the islands of Fiji. They are compared to Phaius in their culture and have epiphytic like roots, long, furrowed, succulent-like pseudobulbs with plicate leaves and a few cup or bottle-shaped, fragrant flowers on a short stumpy inflorescence arising with the new growth. The flowers have sepals that cohere into an obliquely jug-shaped body that are free at the top, l;ateral sepals that are much broader than the dorsal, deccurrent on the column foot and forms a mentum with it. The very mobile, small, saddle-shapped lip is on top of the column foot and has a disc with varrying amounts of longitudinal keels. There are 8, waxy pollina in two separate bundles all attached to a short, granular stalk.

Synonyms Acanthophippium Blume 1825;

Common Name or Meaning refers to the saddle-like lip with thorn-like points

Acostaea Schlechter 1923 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Pleurothallidinae.

According to Luer. This genus has 6 species that are all found from Costa Rica to Colombia and Ecuador, occuring at higher elevations as dwarf caespitose epiphytes with narrowly elliptic leaves without pseudobulbs arising on short ramicals with an annulus giving rise to a spathe through which an inflorescence arises bearing a loose raceme with with several opening in succession, with a single flower at a time and each surpasses the leaves in length. The flower has two pollina and has a sensitive lip which when movement from a pollinator is detected, snaps shut trapping the intruder who then pollinates the flower and is released in the morning.

Common Name or Meaning Named for the Costa Rican collecter Don Guillermo Acosta

Ada Lindl. 1854 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae SUBTRIBE Oncidiinae.

There are 17 epiphytic and occasionally lithophytic [on steep embankments] species in this genus found from Nicaragua south to Venezuela, Colombia to Peru and Bolivia that has many simalarities to Brassia but differs in having numerous distichous leaves and inflorescences per pseudobulb as well as a reflexed lip bearing a bilamellate basal callus often terminating in 2 tooth like mounds and subsimilar petals and sepals. Ada also has large and inflated floral bracts that also help distinguish this genus from Brassia and Oncidium. The plants of this genus are found between the elevations of 650 to 2700 meters but the majority occur at the more moderate elevations of 1800 to 2200 meters as warm to cool growing plants.

Aeranthes Lindley 1824 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Vandeae, SUBTRIBE Angraecinae.

There are 43 species on the islands of Madagascar, Comoros, and the Mascarenes and two from the mainland of Africa. The plant itself is an epiphyte and has a short stem, or may not have one at all, with distichous leaves, a pendant inflorescence with one or more small to large flowers that are somewhat transparent, green, yellow, and seldom white. They prefer shady, humid, well watered conditions and even fertilizer year round. The inflorescences which can take months to form should not be removed until it is obvious that they are dead as they can rebloom off the same spike. The plants should be grown in baskets with an epiphytic mix to accommodate the long pendant inflorescence that can reach 4' or longer.

Common Name or Meaning referes to the epiphytic growth habit

Aerides Lour. 1790 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Vandeae, SUBTRIBE Aeridinae.

Aerides is found in most of Asia and out to the Philippines and has 28 species, mostly fragrant. They are similar to Vanda in plant form yet their flowers have a forward facing spur. They are best grown in wooden slat baskets with little or no potting media. They are typically cool to hot growing epiphytes and come in medium to large sizes, all are monopodial, have strap-shaped leaves and the plants appear outwardly to be Vandas. The sepals and petals are subsimilar with the lateral sepals more or less decurrent on the column foot. The stiffly hinged, threee lobed lip has the lateral lobes decurrent to the column. A spur that is usually bent forward and has swellings and calli within. A short column with a large foot and 2 cleft pollina on a narrow stipe with various viscidium.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the epiphyytic growth habit

Aglossorrhyncha Schltr. 1905 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE ?, SUBTRIBE Agrostophyllinae

There are 13 small to medium, mostly epiphytic to terrestrial herbs; stems slender to c. 35 cm long, usually branched; differing from Glossorhyncha Ridl. by the upper leaf sheaths not being ciliated, differing in the absence of a spur or sack like projection at the base of the lip and the presence of a slender and perfectly bare column. The leaves are usually spread out, distichously arranged, linear or ligulate with either an acute or to near apiculate apex; in the species A. serrulata the leaves are finely serrated, cabbage-like. The leaves in other species are more rigid. The inflorescences are apical with green to sulphur yellow glabrous flowers. The flowers are relatively small and borne singely or in pairs; the sepals are cucullate - amplectens with the laterals sometimes conglutinate; labella are more or less cucullate and concave. Six epiphytic orchids, with one exeption, of the Papua and New Guinea mist-forests where they grow on thick branches of very tall primary trees and only in those places surrounded by thick moss.

Anacheilium Hoffmannsegg 1842 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Laeliinae.

There are 59 species in this genus at this time segregated from Encyclia to accomodate the non-resupinate, "cockleshell" flowers, and the inflorescence emerges from a spathe which can remain green or become brown, can be large or almost insignificant but they are always there which separates this group from Encyclia. The lips often have a cushion-like callus enveloped by fine hairs and the fruit capsules are always three winged or three sided. The rostellum of the column is never divided and most often has 3 apical, knobs or teeth that are equal in size and shape.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the upper-sided lip, non resupinate
