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.

Jumellea Schlechter 1914 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Vandeae, SUBTRIBE Angraecinae.

This genus is made up of 60 epiphytic or lithophytic or occasionally terrestrial species from the Islands of Madagascar, Comoros and Mascarene and two species from the East African mainland that are similar culturally to Angraecum. In Victorian times the leaves of Jumellea fragrans were used to brew a tea like beverage called 'Faham Tea'. Their range is from sealevel up to 2000 meters in open forests. They have short or relatively long stems with leaves either arranged along the stem or held in a fan shape. The flowers have narrow segments and a lanceolate lip that does not envelop the column. All the inflorescence carry a single, fragrant, white or green white flower.

Jumellea can be arranged into 7 groups.

Group #1 Very large plants, but with a short or no stem, and the inflorescence arising around the fan of leaves [a total of 11 species are in this group]

Group #2 Plants with a short stem and very small leaves very close together [3 species]

Group #3 Plants with a very elongate stem, and a spur at the base of the lip that is 1.5cm or less in length [10 species]

Group #4 Plants with a very elongate stem and a spur that is 1 to 1.8" [2.5 to 4.5 cm] long [3 species]

Group #5 Plants with elongate stems and a spur the is 2.6 to 3.2" [6.5 to 8 cm] long [1 species]

Group #6 Plants with an elongate stem and a spur that is 4" [10 cm] or longer [16 species]

Group #7 Plants found in Africa [2 species]

Group #8 Plants from Reunion and the Mauritius

Kefersteinia Rchb.f 1852 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae , TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Zygopetalinae

There are 70 species at this time in this tropical American genus separated from Chondrorhyncha and characterized by a lack of pseudobulbs, foliaceous, distichous leaf sheaths forming a fan, narrow and lightly veined leaves, single flowered inflorescence that arise from the leaf sheath axils giving rise to a flower with a lip whose sides usually surround the column at the base, a pedestal like callus at the lip base, a column with a keeled underside and four compressed pollina on a short stipe attached to a hooked cordiform viscidium. This genus is mostly epiphytic, althought here are some that are found terrestrially occasionally, and grow in very wet montane forests at elevations of 300 to 2500 metrs and should be grown warm to cool with ample year round water, never allowing to dry out.

There are 17 species in this genus of smaller epiphytes and occasional terrestrials. Occuring in very wet cloud forests this genus needs to be kept moist at all times, and as they are found as a whole at elevations of 1000 to 2000 meters they need to be grown with warm to cool temperatures in pots with a well draining medium. They are characterized by the presence of tiny pseudobulbs surrounded by the bases of narrow, lightly veined, plicate leaves with a lateral multifloral inflorescence produced on a new or mature growth, giving rise to flowers with the sepals and petals free, a threee lobed lip with a bilobed, erect callus, attached to an elongate column foot, spurless, and four hard pollina in two pairs.

Laelia Lindley 1831 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Laeliinae.

Laelia was first described by John Lindley in 1831 and Schlechter revised it in 1917 by dividing the genus to 7 subsections.

1. Cattleyodes- the species that resemble Cattleya yet have 8 pollina such as Laelia purpurata.

2.Hadrolaelia- Have lips with distinctive crests and keels as well as heteroblastic psuedobulbs such as Laelia pumila.

3.Laelia- has homoblastic psuedobulbs such as Laelia speciosa.

4. Microlaelia- same as section 3 except for sepals and petals are of equal size such as Laelia lundii.

5. Cyrtolaelia- they are rupicolious or rock growing and have a narrow lip and the flower color is most often yellow to orange red such as Laelia cinnabarina.

6.Podolaelia- has sheaths and an articulated stem such as Laelia anceps.

7. Calolaelia- has a single species, Laelia superbiens, which has now been moved to Schomburgkia.

Lepanthes Sw. 1799 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae , TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Pleurothallidinae.

According to Carl Luer. There are over 1111 species in this mini-miniature epiphytic or lithophytic genus that have smaller flowers that nestled near where the stem attaches generally to a single leaf. Typically the ramicauls are emclosed by a series of tubular, ribbed, more or less imbricating sheaths with oblique, dilated, marginated ostia, and the ribs and margins of the ostia are grossly or microscopically ciliate or scabrous, occasionally glabrous. The flowers, are usually produced successively in racemes with an annulus near the apex of the ramicaul, are delicate, membranous and multicolored. The petals and lip commonly are transversly lobed. The lip is usually so specialized that it's own terminology is required. The middle lobe is commonly represented by a sculpted, microscopic appendix. The base of the lip is connate to the under surface and often near the base of the footless column. Teh anther has a pair of pollina and is dorsal or apical and the stigma is apical, subapical or ventral.

In the genus Lepanthes as a whole each species has only a single flower which is produced successively over a few weeks to a few months but it is possible for most any Lepanthes species to have more than 1 flower at any one time.

In this genus as in all others in this work, a super mini-miniature is a plant that is 1" or less in height, mini-miniature represents a plant of less than 4" tall, miniature represents a plant less than 6" tall, small is less than 12" and medium less than 24" tall.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the smale scale-like flowers

Type species = ! = Epidendrum ovale Sw 1799 = Lepanthes ovalis (Sw.) Fawc. & Rendle 1910

    The Genus Lepanthes is tough because of the complex flowers and often extreme small size, their wide distribution at higher elevations and are not seen as frequently as many other genera and there are hundreds of them so if a species says checked "W3Tropicos type ok" then it is fairly certain. Species that do not have that line or say that the type does not match the photo given can be and often are misnamed.

Lepanthopsis [Cogn.]Ames 1933 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae , TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Pleurothallidinae.

According to Carl Luer. There are 43 species in this widespread American species which is found from Florida to Mexico and the West Indies and then south to Peru and Brazil that are normally epiphytes with short rhizomes and clustered erect stems each having several obconical cilliate sheaths and a terminal leaf. The distinctive features are the lepanthiform sheaths of the ramicauls and the small flowers with a short column and an apical anther and stigma which is also bilobed. There are two pollina present.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the similarities of this genus with the genus Lepanthes

Leptotes Lindley 1833 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Laeliinae.

Leptotes consist of nine species that come from Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay and was first described as a genus by Lindley in 1833 using Leptotes bicolor as the type species. They are small sticklike plants that carry large flowers for the size of the plant. They have one subterete leaf on a short stem that gives rise from the axil an inflorescence with one to a few flowers with subsimilar sepals and petals and a 3 lobed lip with a short distinct claw on the sidelobes that is fixed to the base of the column which is short erect and has 6 waxy pollina, 4 large and two small. They grow best mounted on cork , wood or tree fern to accomodate the small pseudobulbs that grow into clumps fairly quickly if the plant is happy. They are happiest with moderate shade and humidity and need less watering after flowering but not a true rest.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the delicate growth habit

Lockhartia Hooker 1827 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Oncidiinae.

There are 28 species spread throughout tropical America, it was first described by Sir William Hooker in 1827 and his type species was Lockhartia elegans. One of the easier genera to identify from it's plant shape, which is like a pendant, braided, flat belt-like stem with flowers arising from along the flattened apical sheaths. The flowers have sepals and petals free and spreading, the lip is also free with a callus at the base and it has a short winged column with no foot and an apical anther with 2 hard pollina attached to a stipe which in turn is connected to a viscidium. They grow in wet forests from sealevel to 1000 meters and enjoy an intermediate environment with steady water and fertilizer while growing and less as the autumn begins, start anew with the appearance af a new growth in the spring. They are best potted with tree fern chunks packed into a small pot to anchor a newly cut psuedobulb which will produce roots if kept warm and humid but no wet.

Ludisia A. Rich. 1825 SUBFAMILY Orchidoideae, TRIBE Cranichideae SUBTRIBE Goodyerinae

This is a monotypic genus that is quite variable and is found in S.E. Asia and China. It is a terrestrial that needs shady humid conditions and an even watering and fertilizing schedule. They make good house plants and can be easily grown by the novice. Pieces of the fleshy psuedobulbs can be stuck in dirt or in a glass jar with water and roots will appear in a few weeks. Thsy grow best in a hanging pot with a well draining dirt mixture. They are grown more for the color of the leaves than the blooms, but a lage plant in flower is an impressive site.

A genus of 40 species found in all of tropical Asia as monopodial epiphytes that have the same vegatative look as the terete Vandas. As a whole the flowers have a bee like appearance similar to species within the genus Ophrys and because of this they also carry the common name of 'Bee Orchids'. They have clumped, slender terete, branching near the base stems that carry alternate, dark green fleshy, slender, terete, leaves that are conduplicate to the stem base that bloom on an axillary, short inflorescence each carrying a single flowers although there are usually more than one at the same junction. The fleshy lip is immovably attached to the base of the column, pendent, hardly lobed, usually distictly divided by a goove into a concave basal and wrinkled apical parts.

Lycaste Lindley 1842 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Zygopetalinae.

This genus has epiphytes, lithophytes and terrestrials in it's 52 species that are spread throughout Central America, the West Indies and South America south to Peru and Bolivia at elevations of 500 to 2800 meters. They have plicate, deciduous leaves with short, ovate, thick, ribbed psuedobulbs with 2 or 3, thin, heavily-veined, apical leaves with foliaceous sheaths at the base, giving rise to a lateral inflorescence with more than one arising from the base of the psuedobulb with a single flower in most species. The flowers are large, often fragrant, with subequal spreading sepals and petals, a three lobed lip that is flexibly united to the column foot, a slender column that is wingless or narrowly 2 winged, has a basal foot, an apical anther, 2 to 4 pollina with 2 very short to elongate stipites. Humid, shady conditions are required with water and fertilizer as the plant is growing; as the leaves begin to yellow and fall the water needs to be reduced along with a drop in temperatures to assure a good blooming.

Common Name or Meaning A greek nymph and daughter of Priamos king of the Trojans

Lycomormium Rchb. f. 1852 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Coelopsidinae

There are five terrestrial or epiphytic species in this genus spread through the Andes from Colombia to Peru. Visually the flowers are very similar to Peristeria but differ in the lip which is divided into a distinct hypopchile and a moveable epichile as well as the sulcate pollina which is almost directly attached to the viscidium. They typically have large ovoid, slightly ribbed pseudobulbs with 2 to 3 apical, thin, heavily-veined leaves subtended by foliaceous lateral sheaths giving rise to a pendant, basal inflorescence.

Common Name or Meaning Lyco = wolf - Mormo = hobgoblin refers to the odd flowers
