HOME Orchid Species Glossary

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.

Two small epiphytic or lithophytic plants with a creeping rhizome concealed by scarious sheaths and giving rise to a single leaf are found in Guatemala and Mexico, and make up this genus best grown mounted on tree fern. They require shade and ample watering while growing and less after flowering.

Rich which preceded it by 118 years but was thought to be used for a genus in the grass family but that usage was proved to not be validly published so therefore the name Mendocella , introduced by Hawkes in 1963 was invalid as the name Galeottia was published earlier.

There are 5 to 6 species taken from Miltonia and a original plant cited by Godefroy-Lebeuf that all come from Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia, Venezuela and Peru and differ from Miltonia by it's one leafed pseudobulbs and it's ex-auriculate column which is united to the lip through a keel and is not excavate at the base. For hybridizing purposes Miltonopsis is listed under Miltonia. They should be given good shade and humidity and watered often while growing and less as growth stops.

    Mormodes Lindley 1836 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Catasetinae.

    This genus of 81 species is found from Mexico to Bolivia and Brazil and are epiphytes found in lower tropical forests. The fleshy pseudobulbs have heavily veined deciduous leaves and the inflorescence is produced from the middle of the pseudobulb a major distinguishing factor with the plant out of flower between this genus and the genus Catasetum which has a basal inflorescence. These plants are related to the Catasetum and can be crossed with them producing extremely bizarre flowers. The flowers are large and showy with similar sepals and petals, with the dorsal sepal arching over the column while lateral sepals flex back, the lip arises from the base of the apodal column which has reflexed lateral edges, two large side lobes and an acute apex. The erect column is twisted to the side allowing the anther and an elongate stigma to be exposed. There are two pollina with an elastic stipe and they are ejected by means of a sensitive mechanism. Hot to cool conditions suit these plants well and they like to be wet when the growth is happening but once maturity is attained in the fall all water and fertilizer should be withheld until the new growth arises in the spring.

    Myoxanthus Poepp. & Endl. 1836 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Pleurothallidinae.

    There are about 47 species of small to large, epiphytic, occasionally terrestrial, caespitose, repent or scandent, with the rhizome enclosed by usually hispidulous sheaths and the roots coarse to slender. The ramicauls are erect to ascending, non-pseudobulbless [although there can be a basal swelling], shorter, the same as or longer than the leaf, unifoliate, partially enclosed by elongate imbricating sheaths. The inflorescence arises without an annulus, emerging laterally from the ramicaul or rarely directly from the rhizome. They have a single flower, or a fascile of single flowers, occuring successively or simultaneously, borne by a slender or stout peduncle, with a bract. The floral bracts are thin, tubular and sometimes inflated, other times pubescent or spiculate. Differing from Pleurothallis from which the genus was separated in the hispid sheaths that cover the erect stems, the single flowers produced successively or simultaneously in the leaf axil and the variously thickened and extended tips of the petals.

    In general they need moderate shade and high humidity with watering and fertilizer year round. They can be potted but are better presented mounted as they can form large masses.

    Common Name or Meaning refers to the fleshy red-brown sepals

    According to Carl Luer.

    There are 17 or so species in this diminutive Jewel Orchid genus with an above ground horizontal stem that turns up before flowering and has a few leaves spread out up the stem but there are several together at the inflorescence base and carries 2 to 3, resupinate flowers that do not open well. The flowers have free sepals but the dorsal one is joined to the petals to form an umbrella over the column. The lip has an elongate claw with a spreading apex and inside the saccate base there are two, bilobed glands, two stigmas and 2 pollina.

    Most of these 10 species were listed in Schomburgkia but have been moved to the genus Myrmecophila, which means ant bearing, and as the name implies they have psuedobulbs that are naturally hollow to accommodate an ant colony who keep the long growing, long spiking inflorescence and buds safe from predators such as thrips, who would suck the buds dry in a second.

    This is a monotypic genus possibly endemic to Tanzania and it grows warm and humid on cliff faces and sloping rock faces either lithophyhtically or terrestrial. The plants have a grasslike look with a long reedy stem and many leaves that give rise to a terminal inflorescence at 3 feet or more high, which are induced by giving brighter light during the early summer. If you wish to propagate this plant leave the inflorescence on after the flowers die and keikis will form at the nodes of the old flowers.

    There are 8 species in Eurasia and the far eastern Asia as a terrestrial genus with small tubers giving rise to 2 to 3, plicate, remote, linear-oblong leaves that blooms on a terminal, erect, dense inflorescence with connivent sepals and petals that form a hood over the suberect column and a sessile, deflexed, linear-oblong, trifid to about middle, puberulous lip with a short conoidal, inflated spur. There are 2 pollina, sessile on a large obcordate gland seated in a sinus of the broad three lobed rostellum.

    There are about 11 species of seldom seen terrestrials from Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam that have fleshy variagated leaves on small pseudobulbs and non-resupinate flowers. The sepals and petals are subequal, often reflexed, the lip is sessile to the base of the column, has a short spur, is entire to slightly 3 lobed and the disc is keeled. The short column has winged edges and is lacking a foot. The anther has a small conical horn on either side at the back. There are 8 pollina that are unequally adnate to the linear membrane. Culture is similar to the tropical Phaius.

    Notylia Lindley 1825 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae SUBTRIBE Oncidiinae

    This is a medium sized genus with 56 species spread from Mexico to Brazil and Bolivia most often between the elevations of sealevel to 800 meters with pseudobulbs or not and an apical leaf having one or two foliaceous sheaths that surround the bottom of the bulb. As a whole they grow well mounted on tree fern or cork and need even warm to hot year round conditions. The genus is characterized by having tightly packed pseudobulbs with a single flat leaf at the apex, with the base surrounded by disticious imbricating sheaths from which the pendant, spiral, dense or separated, many flowered inflorescence arises. The flowers have free or united lateral sepals and at times united at the apex, the petals are free and often arch downwards to nearly touching at the apex. The lip has a claw at the base and a triangular blade and may or may not have a callus that is a keel down the mid-line of the claw and extending out onto the blade. It has a terete column with a dorsal anther and a stigma at the apex which is a longitudinal slit. The elongate stipe carries two pollina at the apex.

    Common Name or Meaning refers to the callus on the stigma
