Welcome to the Internet Orchid Species Photo Encyclopedia

Alphabetical search! Use your back button to return.

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.

Dichaea Lindley 1833 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae , SUBTRIBE Zygopetalinae

There are more than 118 species spread throughout tropical America in this little known genus that lacks pseudobulbs and has a monopodial stem with closely arranged distichous leaves, that gives rise, opposite the leaf axil, to an often extremly fragrant, single flowered inflorescence. The flowers are perfect, with ovate to lanceolate, basally concave sepals and petals, distally three-lobed to anchor shaped to clawed ovate, projecting labellum with an erect column and a terminal anther carrying 4 hard and waxy pollina. They are as a whole epiphytic and occur in wet montane forests at elevations of 200-2800 meters and are pollinated by male Euglossine bees. Many of the species are pendant growers and need treefern as a mount, but some are erect growers and can be kept in a pot. The majority of species are intermediate growers and need moderate shade and humid conditions, ample year round water and fertilizer, and with good air circulation.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the typical leaf pattern growing in two opposite rows

A genus of 100 small epiphytic or lithophytic orchids from Malaysia, to Australia and out to the Philippines, and differ from Dendrobium in their one leafed psuedobulbs and axillary, solitary, ephemeral flowers. They have creeping stems with swollen small, clustered pseudobulbs and have either grooved, attenuate-pyriform, or narrow except for the swollen, ridged and sheathed base and carrying a single, apical, oblong-ligulate leaf.

Common Name or Meaning refers to this genus having 2 diferent types of pseudobulbs on the same plant

There are 2 species in this monopodial genus restricted to the India to Thailand corridor. It is related to the genus Vanda but is easy to see why they were always considered different. Characterized by the pendulous habit with flaccidly fleshy, sessile leaves and a leaf-opposed racemose inflroescence of a few yellow flowers with a broad, immovably attached to the column base lip that is fleshy, cymbiform and sigmoidly curved, spurless with a concave hypochile with recurved erect edges, a triangularcompressed and suddenly narrowed epichile and the apex more or less forked into two tails, or truncate and a a disc with an erect keel. There are 4 unequal pollina with the stipes narrowing upwards froma broad base and an ovate viscidium.

Dipodium R. Brown 1810 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Eulophiinae.

There are 25 species in this fascinating saprophytic genus from Southern China, S.E. Asia, Malaysia, Indonesia, New Guinea, Australia and the Philippines. These terrestrials can be either leafless with short, slender stems with reduced bracts or leafed with long climbing vinelike plants that grow from the apex and have roots throughout and branch irregularly, and strangely enough there is a group within the genus that has a monopodial-like growth habit similar to Vanda but this genus is a part of the Cyrtopodiinae. They need shade, warmth and a large area as they are scrambling terrestrials that can be potted in coarse bark, leafmold and sphagnum moss and need an even watering schedule year round.

Disa Berg. 1767 SUBFAMILY Orchidoideae, TRIBE Orchideae, SUBTRIBE Disinae

A genus made up of 187 terrestrial herbs with tuberous roots widespread throughout tropical Africa as well as South Africa, Madagascar and the Mascarenes. They are characterized by having ovoid, globose or ellipsoid tubers that give rise to a flowering stem with leaves and sheathing leaves or a separate sterile shoot with leaves only. This genus blooms on a racemose, one to many flowered inflorescence with free sepals, the spurred dorsal sepal that generally forms a hood and large, spreading lateral sepals, and the smaller petals, which can be entire or lobed and often held within the hood. The lip is narrow and not spurred and carries a short column, an erect, horizontal or reflexed anther, a cushion-like stigma lying beneath the anther which carries 2 pollina each with a caudicle and a viscidium. These plants need cool to cold temperatures and kept quite humid and wet while growing and then a definite decrease after flowering.

Common Name or Meaning Refers to the mythical queen Disa who came to the king's court dressed in a fishnet an allusion tothe reticulate patern of the galea of the type species

There are 3 species that makes up this genus found from Burma to Sumatra. It has been used extensively to hybridize with Phalaenopsis and these are known as Doritaenopsis. Culture for this genus is the same as that for Phalaenopsis. It is characterized by minute stems carryinglarge, radical, fleshy leaves and blooms on an axillary, erect, few to many flowered, well spaced inflorescence with small flowers with spreading tepals, the lateral sepals atached throughout the column foot which alos has the lip attached and motile, with a long claw, carrying a pair of lateral flat appendages just below the point at which it widens into the 3 lobed lip with erect lateral lobes, a more flreshy midlobe usually with 2 keels. The erect column has a porrect, filiform rostellum and 4, unequally paired, globular pollina.

Dracula Luer 1978 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Pleurothalidinae.

According to Carl Luer. The genus is made up of 135 or so species that spread through all of Andean America including the cordillera in Central America. They are epiphytes and are found at higher elevations so most are cool if not cold growers. Fairly thin, broad leaves with a midrib are borne on a short ramicaul and distinguish this genus from Masdevallia without looking at the flowers, which have long tailed sepals and are borne singly or successively in commonly, pendant racemes which arise from the ramicaul with an annulus which is a considerable distance below the abscission layer or where the leaf separates from the stem. The small unique petals that flank the column are thickened apically and are ususally verrucose between a pair of valve like laminae. The lip is clearly divided into a cleft hypochile and a more or less rounded, concave epichile often coursed by lammellate radiating "veins". The semiterete column is well developed witha hooded ventral anther and stigma and a short, thick foot with two pollina. They do best in pots and need to be kept in moist humid conditions with lower light.

Common Name or Meaning flowers are reminiscent of a dragons mouth

The ramicauls are often shorter than the leaf, and the inflorescence emerges without an annulus from the apex of the ramicaul at the abscission layer with the sessile leaf. The solitary flowers are fleshy with the ovary and sepals pubescent. The column is elongate and denticulate at trhe hooded apex. The ventral anther contains a pair of large pollina flanked to either side by a smaller pair of pollina for a total of four. They are found throughout the tropical mountains of Central and South America. As a whole this genus is found in wet cloud forests at 800 to 2500 meters and needs to be grown moist conditions and with warm to cool temperatures.

Dressleria Dodson 1975 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Catasetinae.

There are eleven species found from Nicaragua to Ecuador and Venezuela in this epiphytic genus derived from members of Catasetum as they always have bisexual flowers in which the lip is adnate to the column-base and sides and Catasetum has both male and female flowers. This genus differs from Catasetum in the fact that Dressleria need to be kept moist at al times of the year, ie no rest, and they enjoy warm to cool conditions as they are found at elevations of 500 to 1500 meters in extremly wet forests on both sides of the Andes.

Dryadella Luer 1978 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Pleurothallidinae

According to Carl Luer. A widely spead genus of 54 species from Guatemala to Brazil created out of the genus Masdevallia in 1978 by Carlyle Luer. They are all epiphytes that grow into large clumps with creeping rhizomes and erect, one leafed, short ramicauls. The little flowers are produced singly or successively in short racemes from an annulus. The commonly caudate sepals are connate basally into a gaping cup. Where the lateral sepals are deflexed from the cup above the base, a transverse callus like a transverse fold extends across the width of the sepals so that the petals and lip above protrude over the "dam". The petals are short, broad and multi-angled. The bicallous blade of the lip is hinged to the column foot by a long slender claw. The column is broadly winged and hooded with a ventral anther and stigma with 2 pollina. This genus needs to be kept moist, and given high humidity year round as they are found as epiphytes in moist cloud forests at elevations of 400 to 2500 meters.
