Maxillaria tenuifolia

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 author of the basiosynonym, while Nelson is the author 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.

Maxillaria Ruiz and Pavon 1794 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Oncidiinae.

This genus is composed of 650 some species spread throughout the tropical and sub-tropical Americas at elevations of sealevel to 3500 meters and are found as epiphytes, terrestrials and lithophytes with a very short to elongate rhizome which creeps, ascends or is suberect and clothed in a somewhat transparent, papery sheaths and gives rise to clustered or remote pseudobulbs with 1 to 2 leaves or in some just leaves without pseudobulbs. The inflorescence generally has only one flower that can be very small or large and showy with free sepals and petals, an adnate lip with three lobes or an entire lip with a distinct callus on the disc and has 4 waxy pollina. There are 2 groups of Maxillaria species that can be distinguished by the way the lip is attached to the column foot, the first has the lip totally united with the column and usually has small flowers such as Maxillaria ramosa, the other which is the largest group, has the lip articulated to the column and has larger flowers
