GROUP Maniespinosarum

Characterized by the caespitose habit, erect paniculate inflorescence, without a spathe, few, laxly spaced resupinate flowers, a simple triangular, bicallose lip. It is somewhat reminiscent of the GROUP Herrenhusanum , recognized by the caespitose, sympodial habit, the erect racemose inflorescence subtended by a narrow, long spathe, and non-resupinate flowers.
