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 taxons 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.

According to Carl Luer 1999. The largest genus within the Orchidaceae in the New World with more than 1000 species represented from all parts of subtropic and tropical Americas. Typically they are epiphytes but on occasion they can be found terrestrially or lithophtically with extremely diverse plant forms, from minature moss like plants to large ranging plants of several feet in height. Their cultural requirements are as varied as their plant form so each species should be treated according to the enviroment that it is found.

Common Name or Meaning relates to the shoots extending sideways like ribs

SUBGENUS Aberrentia Luer 2004

A monotypical subgenus characterized by the thick obcuneate petals that are lobulate apicallyand the long-unguiculate lip.

SUBGENUS Acianthera These are misfits or unknowns section wise

SUBGENUS Acianthera SECTION Brachystachyae Lindley 1859 Characterized by the short to elongate, but seldom prolific ramicauls [similar species with compressed ramicauls are treated in Section sicariae] carry sessile leaves with margins that are sometimes decurrent on the ramicaul. The usually short, fleshy, racemose inflorescence is terminal from the ramicaul and does not arise through an annulus but can arise from the rhizome as in the case of P johnsonii. The long to short, single to many flowered inflorescence have flowers with fleshy, often pubescent sepals whose laterals are connate. The thick, ligulate lip usually with a pair of calli on the disc is more or less broadly unguiculate and often minutely bilobulate at the delicately hinged base.

SUBGENUS Acianthera SECTION Cryptophoranthae Luer 1986 Characterized by the dorsal sepal being connate to the lateral sepals forming a lateral window. Almost exclusively occuring in Brazil.

SUBGENUS Acianthera SECTION Sicariae SUBSECTION Pectinatae Luer 1986 Characterized by the sharply compressed, ancipitous ramicauls with the adaxial margin being minutely to slightly sulcate below the junction with the leaf. Mostly occurs in Brazil and a few adjacent countries.

SUBGENUS Acianthera SECTION Sicariae SUBSECTION Sicariae Luer 1986 Characterized by the triquetrous ramicauls with well developed sharp wings and they are continuous with the margins of the blade of the leaf above. The subgenus Arthrosia has similar three-edged ramicauls but the articulated lip of this subsection immediately separate them.

SUBGENUS Acianthera SECTION Tomentosae Luer 1986 Characterized by the repent habit with ramicauls enveloped by hispidulous sheaths and have usually shorter than the leaf inflorescence that arise from the apex of the ramicaul without an annulus and have more or less fleshy, pubescent flowers.

SUBGENUS Acianthera SECTION Tricarinatae Luer 1986 Characterized by the repent rhizome with erect, more or less laterally compressed above ramicauls giving rise to more or less laterally compressed peduncles and floral bracts, triquetrous ovaries and the tall-carinate sepals, a ligulate lip, an elongate column and a partially covered ventral anther.

SUBGENUS Acuminatia SECTION Acuminatae Lindley 1859 Characterized by the ramicaul longer or as long as the petiolate to subpetiolate base leaf that is never sessile. The racemose inflorescence arises laterally either singly and successively or several simultaneously in a fascile arising from an annulus shortly below the abscission layer. The flowers arise mostly simultaneously in short to elongate racemose inflorescence and have the three sepals free, similar and pubescent within, the broadly obtuse to rounded apically petals are small and entire as well as the oblong lip is generally shallowly concave centrally between parellel calli or erect margins below the middle. The lip is also variously callous or lobed. The column is slender and carries a ventral anther and stigma with a pair of pollina that are attached to a single, small viscidium. The column foot is well developed and extends beyond the end of the ovary and is slender or narrowly longitudinally winged. The lip is delicately hinged to the lip.

SUBGENUS Acuminatia SECTION Alatae Lindley 1859 Characterized by the ramicaul longer or as long as the petiolate to subpetiolate base leaf that is never sessile. The racemose inflorescence arises laterally either singly and successively or several simultaneously in a fascile arising from an annulus shortly below the abscission layer. The flowers arise mostly simultaneously in short to elongate racemose inflorescence and have the three glabrous sepals free, similar and pubescent within, the glabrous, narrowly acute to long-acuminate apically petals are small and entire as well as the simple oblong lip has a shallow, midline channel. The lip is also variously callous or lobed. The column is broad with more or less rectangular wings above the middle and carries a ventral anther and stigma with a pair of pollina that are attached to a single, small viscidium. The column foot is well developed and extends beyond the end of the ovary and is slender or narrowly longitudinally winged. The lip is delicately hinged to the lip.

SUBGENUS Aenigma Luer 1986Characterized by the shortly repent, ascending rhizome with more or less fasciculated, short ramicauls with a successively flowered inflorescence arising through an annulus. There are two sections divided over having a long-spiculate or a glabrous ovary.

SUBGENUS Ancipitia SECTION Ancipitia Luer 1986 Characterized by the sharply laterally compressed, ancipitous ramicauls except in one species that is 4 angled, the cordate and sessile leaves and the long pedicellate single flowers produced in a fascile at the base of the leaf without an annulus. The sepals are more or less membraneous with the laterals connate. The petals are thickened towards the apex and the lips are diversely modified, often into bizarre shapes resembling insect and animal horns and ears. The morphology of the some parts of the flowers is quite variable among the species but the ramicauls, leaves, peduncles, sepals and petals are quite consistently the same.

SUBGENUS Andreettaea

"A monotypic genus that vegetatively is similar to many others: small and caespitose with narrowly obovate leaves borne by short ramicauls with an annulus. The non-resupinate flowers are borne successively in a few-flowered raceme about as long as the leaves. The shortly acuminate sepals are connivent to the apex except for the lateral sepals which part in the middle on the dorsum of the flower to form a tiny, elliptical window to the interior. The species seems most closely allied to the species of P. subgen. Specklinia." Text by Carl Luer Icones Vol III 1986

SUBGENUS Antilla Luer 2000 Characterized by a shorter to as long as the leaf ramicaul carrying an elliptical, acute sessile leaf which may have a denticulate margin. They have a loose, flexible, more or less flexuous inflorescence that arises througha small spathe. The plants and the inflorescence often are pendent, The flowers are produced either simultaneously or successively. The dorsal sepal is essentially free, the laterals are connate to lightly adherent into a minutely bifid synsepal. The petals are small, acute amd sometimes serrulate and the small lip is often unguiculate. The blade is more or less lobed and bicallous. The column is proportionally large and winged.

SUBGENUS Apoda-Prorepentia Luer 1986 Characterized by the long-repent, more or less pendant rhizome with prostrate to pendant, short ramicauls and comparatively large, overlapping, more or less pendant leaves with an inflorescence arising through an inflated, large spathe at the base of the leaf without an annulus. The flowers are often hidden within the spathe. The sepals are variously connate and the column is elongate with a partially hooded anther.

SUBGENUS Arthrosia Luer 1986 Characterized by the tranverse callus across the base of the lip that articulates with a transverse cavity across the base of the column foot. The apex of the column is toothed or lacerate and is partially covering the anther. The caespitose to repent ramicauls may be round to laterally compressed to triquetrous above and carry sessile leaves and racemose inflorescence without an annulus.

SUBGENUS Crocodeilanthe [Rchb.f & Warsc.]Luer 1986 Characterized by the one to many racemose inflorecence arising laterally through a usually conspicuous, foliaceous spathe in association with an distinct annulus. The often pubescent within, connate to semiconnate lateral sepals and the membraneous, short, entire, obtuse to rounded petals surround the lip which can be 1, two to three lobed and often has a pair of calli somewhere near the middle or on a transverse bar, but sometimes this feature is obscure. The column is short with an exposed apical to subapical anther and stigma. The thick short base of the column is more or less bulbous amd articulates with the cavity at the base of the lip similar to the "Ball & Socket" articulation in the genus Barbosella. This feature occasionally has the joint more or less adnate and immobile and it can be merely broadly hinged to the column foot.

SUBGENUS Didactylus Luer 2004 Characterized by the sessile leaf and terminal racemose inflorescence with flowers that have a semi-terete column with ventral anther, bibrachiate rostellum and ventral stigma.

SUBGENUS Dracontia Luer 1986 Characterized by the caespitose habit and a ramicaul as long or longer than the leaf and an inflorescence that arises from the ramicaul through a spathe with or without a distinct annulus a short distance below the abscission layer. The spathe subtending the inflorescence is large, conspicuous and foliaceous in 3 species. The relatively large flowers are bourne successively or simultaneously in loose, racemes with flowers that have tailess sepals but some species have a dorsal sepal with narrowly acute apices.

Polycycnis Rchb. f 1855. SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Catasetinae.

There are maybe 17 species in this epiphytic genus found from Costa Rica to Colombia, Peru and then east on the coast to Guyana at elevations of sea level to 1500 meters as epiphytes in dense forests, or rarely as terrestrials on roadside banks in very humid, shady locations and differs from Cycnoches in the mostly pendant flowers being hermaphroditic and the lack of a fleshy lip. The genus is characterized by having naked older pseudobulbs with only the newest growth carrying leaves, a pendant inflorescence with many pubescent flowers that have a swan neck-shaped, slender arched column.

Common Name or Meaning refers to how the flower is reminiscent of a swans neck and head

Polystachya Hooker 1824 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Vandeae, SUBTRIBE Polystachyinae.

There are more than 130 species of this epiphytic, sometimes terrestrial or lithophytic, highly diverse genus in range and plant form. This genus is found from tropical Africa to the Caribbean, Florida and Mexico southward to Brazil, and then eastward through the Pacific, South East Asia, and Indonesia. As a genus the plants have nodding flowers so they open downwards and most have pseudobulbs that are swollen at the base with a few leaves, a simple or branched, terminal, racemose inflorescence with rather small, non-resupinate flowers with larger lateral sepals than the dorsal and much narrower petals, the disc of the lip is covered with a mealy substance and the column has a prominent foot and is short and cylindrical carrying 4 pollina.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the capability for this genus to rebloom off of old spikes

Porroglossum Schlechter 1920SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Pleurothallidinae

Common Name or Meaning refers to the great distance between the column and the lip

A genus of 49 species ranging from Venezuela and Colombia and south to Bolivia and Peru of epiphytes or occasionally lithiphytes occuring in montane cloud forests and are closely allied to Masdevallia with which they differ in the sensitive lip of distinctive shape that aids with pollination by trapping insects when it is triggered by movement on the lip. This genus has a short ramicaul with a successive flowering, hirsute, glabrous or verrucose inflorescence that emerges from an annulus and is much longer than the leaves. There are two piriform pollina attached to a viscidium.

There are 19 species in this occaisional lithophytic and often epiphytic genus that is endemic to Brazil and is often found sprawling on dwarf Vellozia bushes with it's roots trailing onto the rock close below, on exposed rock hillsides often with water seepage because of its extended, rambling rhizomes between pseudobulb growths that carry 3 to 7 apical, deciduous leaves that clasp the fusiform pseudobulb from the upper third till the apex. The pseudobulbs and leaves have a Cyrtopodium look to them. The elongated inflorescence arises from the apex of the pseudobulb and carries 2 to 15, sequentially opening flowers clustered at the apex in a loose ball.
