SUBGENUS Trichosalpinx

Characterized by the caespitose habit without prolific ramicauls, racemes shorter than the leaf [except for T pringlei; sepals more or less fleshy with the laterals variously connate or at least parellel, sometimes recurving, sometimes forming a concave synsepal, petals ciliate or fringed [except T egleri] and an oblong, often ciliated lip with a central callus and usually with basal lobules. These lips are similar to SUBGENUS Specklinia SECTION Muscosae Lindl. 1842. The stout column is toothed at the apex that partially covers the vebbtral anther. The column foot is stout. Except for lacking ciliate sheths, some Brazilian species, such as Pleurothallis microgemma are practically inseparable.
