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.

Sigmatostalix Rchb.f. 1852 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae SUBTRIBE Oncidiinae

There are about 69 species in this epiphytic genus found from Mexico to Brazil and from sea level to 3000 meters and is allied to the genus Leochilus, but differs in that, the anther is not produced in front into a membranaceous appendage longer than the lobule. This genus typically has an elongated, arcuate column that gives it a superficial resemblance to the genus Cycnoches although there is no relationship between the two genera. The genus is characterized by being small epiphyes with compressed, clustered pseudobulbs with basal sheaths and one or rarely two apical leaves. The basal inflorescence arises from the basal sheaths and is a compound raceme or panicle of a few to several, rather small flowers with free sepals which occasionally are reflexed. The clawed or sessile lip often has a very prominent callus or a series of calli that can be hollowed out and contain a thick liquid. The slender and arched column has well developed wings or ventral cavities carrying two pollina with a long stipe and a viscidium.

Common Name or Meaning refers to the long and bent 'c' or 's' shaped column

` Soterosanthus Lehman ex Jenny 1986 SUBFAMILY Epidendroidea, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Stanhopeinae.

This genus, previously listed as Sievekingia and discovered in 1915 by Rolfe, is a monotypic genus and was separated from Sievekingia because of it's erect, downy inflorescence and by the form of the plant overall including round psuedobulbs and grayish green leaves with reddish undersides and the absence of keels and bristles on its lip. It also is different in that it has on its lip an erect, column-like callus with hairs instead of non-erect glabrous keels. I can attest that it is a warm grower as mine bloomed in July for 5 days and was fairly impressive for the size of the flowers in comparison to the plant. I raised it in wood chips with Fennel rock which is a type of expanded shale. This plant is available through Klehms nursery. There are only two published photos of this plant published to date and they are both by Pedro Ortiz and the Colombian Orchid Society #1 Orquideas Ornamentales de Colombia #2 Native Colombian Orchids Vol4 [Vols 1-6 available] I love these books for there coverage of Colombia where I often visit because my wife has family there. Other than these references you must look at Curtis's Botanical Magazine 141:t8635. 1915 for any previous mention of this plant. My references are the above numbered books. So all in all I have a fairly rare plant up for the world to see.

Spathoglottis Blume 1825 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Bletiinae

This genus has 63 terrestrial species, widespread, ranging from Southern China south to The Philippines and west to Malaysia and Indonesia with the heaviest concentration in New Guinea. It is also an invasive genus in Hawaii to the east, as just in modern times has it been establishing a stronghold. They have ovoid, depressed psuedobulbs that carry a few folded, plicate, narrow leaves. They have a tall, thin inflorescence that arises from the basal leaf axil and have many successesive flowers that open over many months. the sepals and petals are almost equal and are wide spreading. Tne sessile to shortly clawed lip is strongly 3 lobed, narrow and oblong with curved upwards sidelobes, a midlobe with a very narrow claw at the base of 2 small ovoid calli and 2 laterally spreading teeth and the apex that is more or less widening and sometimes cleft. The slender, curved, winged column does not have a foot and the eight pollina are in 2 slender groups of four. These can be grown outside in the ground in South Florida gardens and culture is the same as for Phaius. They appreciate full sun and copius water and fertilizer after the new leads have appeared.

Spiculaea Lindl. 1840 SUBFAMILY Orchidoideae, TRIBE Diurideae, SUBTRIBE Thelymitrinae

There is a single species in this terrestrial genus occuring in Western Australia.

SPICULEA (spiked column wings) CILIATA (soft hairs on the labellum). This remarkable orchid is the product of a much harsher environment than that of the present. It has adapted to survive, flower and reproduce in the summer months (November to January) when all surface moisture is absent. It is widely distributed inland to the goldfields and west to the Darling Scarp where it grows in thin layers of moss and soil on and around granite sheets of rock. To withstand the environmental hazards, the leaf and stem dry off from the base upward to force the sap up the succulent stem enabling the buds to open in turn. This survival trait is demonstrated well when a plant can be plucked, placed in a letter and sent by post without any protection half way across the world to the USA or to Europe, and when received the buds will continue to open. The pollinating strategy is similar to that of the Drakea where the insect imitating labellum is attached to a wiry stem hinged in the centre. Although not sensitive it can only move in the direction of the column (as with Drakea) and achieves pollination via pseudo-copulation. The male wasps, attempting to carry off the sham female, are carried forward and guided by the spiked column wings either to transfer pollen to the stigma or to be daubed with pollen to be carried to another plant. A truly remarkable orchid. Ron Heberle April 2003

    Spiranthes L. C. Rich. 1817 SUBFAMILY Orchidoideae, TRIBE Cranichideae SUBTRIBE Spiranthinae

    There are approximately 50 species of this terrestrial, or rarely epiphytic or lithophytic genus which are spread through all the temperate parts of the globe. They have tuberous or heavily fibrous roots and insignificant leaves and a inflorescence that arises out of the middle of the leaves that are elongate racemes of flowers arranged in a spiral fashion. The dorsal sepal forms a hood with the narrow petals and the lateral sepals are decurrent on the ovaryand form a spur like mentum. The lip is concave to saccate at the base and contains appendages and is simple to three lobed. The short terete column is with or without a foot and has 2 stigmas separated on each side of the elongateed, deeply notched rostellum. The anther is dorsal, erect, cordate, 2 chambered, and has 2, obovoid, deeply cleft, powdery-granular, coherent on a viscid gland on the rostellum. Culture is highly varied and location of the species should be known to apply proper culture.

    Common Name or Meaning refers to the spiral form the flower take on the raceme

    Stanhopea Frost ex Hooker 1829 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae, SUBTRIBE Stanhopeinae.

    From Mexico to Brazil this genus is hard to beat for it's size and beautifully odd complexity, and there are 67 different ways that nature came up with presenting it to us. The ovoid dark green pseudobulbs with a single apical, heavily veined, petiolate leaf give rise to a inflorescence from the bottom of the psuedobulb and grows directly downward and for this reason they must be cultivated in a wire basket. The 1 to many flowered inflorescence have a heavy, mostly pleasing, fragrance that can fill a house with its scent for days. The parts of the Stanhopea Flower are shown here. The column {#1}, petals {#2}, epichile {#3}, Mesochile {#4}, hypochile {5}, horn {#6}, and the pedicel {#7}. The genus is characterized by the ovoid, dark green pseudobulbs carrying a single apical, plicate, petiolate base leaf that blooms on a basal, pendant, 2 to many flowered inflorescence with free sepals and petals with the lateral sepals connate at the base, a lip usually with a hypochile a horned mesochile and an epichiule with a winged column with 4 hard pollina attached to an elongate stipe and united to form a cordiform viscidium

    Common Name or Meaning Named for the Earl of Stanhope VP of the English Royal Botanical Society

    This genus has 500, epiphytic or rarely lithophytic species spread throughout the tropical New World. They inhabit moist, mossy forests on the trunks of trees and many have light sensitive flowers which need direct temporary sun to open and some close completely at night. They have long, dense racemes with triangular flowers and can be grown using culture for Pleurothallis. This genus has no pseudobulbs and has ramicauls carrying a single apical, leaf and blooms on an inflorescence arising from the apex of the ramicaul and has a presence of a joint between the pedicel and the ovary, the flowers have flattened, variously connate, spreading sepals that are often equal in shape and very short truncate petals witha small lip and a very short column often with a bilobed stigma enveloping the anther and has 2 hard pollina.

    Common Name or Meaning refers to the supposed epiphytic habit of this species
