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.

`Ancistrochilus Rolfe 1897 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE ?, SUBTRIBE Collabiinae.

Two species comprise this African genus that ranges from tropical West Africa to Uganda and Tanzania and grows as an epiphyte and loses it's leaves after growth has slowed. At this time the inflorescences should appear from the base of the mature bulb. From after flowering till the appearance of a new lead very little water should be given.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the hook-like bend to the lip

Ancistrorhynchus Finet 1907SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Vandeae, SUBTRIBE Aerangidinae

There are 17 species in tropical Africa as large or small, monopodial epiphytes with long or [more often] short stems and linear, bilobed apically leaves that have the lobes and sometimes sides dentate which is unique to this genus. The short, densly flowered inflorescence arise from the base of the plant from old scarious leaf sheaths and give rise to many white and green flowers with sepals and petals similar, a larger, entire or occasionally faintly trilobed lip, with a wide mouthed, basal spur which is often swollen at the apex often with a bend in the middle, a very short column, a downward pointing rostellum that is bent in the middle so the apex is pointed upwards, 2 pollina and a single viscidium held in small dense clusters of greeen and white flowers held at stem height.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the hook shaped rostellum

Androcorys Schltr. 1919 SUBFAMILY Orchidoideae, TRIBE Orchideae SUBTRIBE Orchidinae

There are 10 species in this terrestrial genus confined to Japan, all the Himalayas and Taiwan that have globose tubers and an erect, single spathulate leaf, a terminal, very short, sparsely flowered inflorescence. The minute flowers have a twisted ovary and broadly axe-shaped, concave petals that are adnate to the dorsal sepal to form a hood over the short hooded column. The lip is small, simple, spurless, narrowly oblong-triangular, adnate to the base of the lateral sepals and the clavate pollina have very short caudicles.

Common Name or Meaning The Helmut Shaped Anther Orchid

The 200 species that make up the genus Angraecum are spread through out tropical Africa, The Comoros Islands, The Seychelles, The Mascarenes and Madagascar from sealevel to 2000 meters. They require a wood slat basket, high humidity, moderate shade, and ample water while in growth and less when not, but never allow to dry out for long periods. They are miniature to large epiphytic, monopodial, strap leafed, with a lateral, axillary, racemose, inflorescence with one to many flowers. The flowers are mostly white in color, sometimes yellow, green or ochre and they are as a rule longlasting and some are fragrant and they all have a long spur at the back of the lip.

Common Name or Meaning refers in Malaysian to it's Vanda-like appearance

Anguloa Ruiz and Pavon 1794 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Zygopetalinae.

This small genus of thirteen terrestrial or sometimes epiphytic species is found in Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador and Peru and has large, fleshy pseudobulbs that have large, plicate, imbricate, deciduous leaves. The single flowered inflorescence arises from the base of the new pseudobulb as a new growth begins. The flower is large, showy, fleshy and cup shaped with a 3 lobed lip and 4 pollina that moves within the sepals and petals. These species need a cool warm to cold environment with some shade, high humidity and lots of fertilizer while growing. They need a 2 to 3 week dry rest in the late winter. Resume water and fertilizer after simultaneous initiation of the new growth and the new inflorescence.

Common Name or Meaning named for Francisco de Angulo, Peruvian orchid enthusiast - Cradle Orchid - Tulip Orchid - In Colombia Cuna de Venus

This genus stood as a monotypic for years but recently 5 more have been added. The genus was segregated for Eria on the basis of the cymbiform lip as well as the lateral sepals are attached directly to the base of the column and there is no column foot. It has, as does Eria, 8 pollina and the same growth habit as the Section Aeridostachya.

Ascocentrum has about seven species in Asia and the Philippines that are compact, vanda-like plants and have upright inflorescence with dense cones of smaller flowers. Most of these plants are warm to intermediate growers that like slat basket culture with little or no potting media. This genus is commonly crossed onto Vanda thereby creating the man made genus Ascocenda. The small flowers open widely and have similar sepals and petals, a 3 lobed, immobile, adnate to the column base and slghtly adnate to the base of the lateral lobes, spurred but not keeled, midlobe oblong, porrect or decurved, thickening at the mouth of the base of the mid lobe lip and has a short, lacking a foot column with2 cleft pollina and a short stipe.
