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.

Macodes (Blume) Lindl. 1840 SUBFAMILY Orchidoideae, TRIBE Cranichideae SUBTRIBE Goodyerinae

There are 11 species in this terrestrial to epiphytic genus grown more for the striking coloration and striping of the leaves than for the smaller and less striking flowers occuring most often within Indonesia. Culture is similar to that given to Ludisia and Anoectochilus. This genus is closely related to Ludisia but differs in having non-resupinate flowers.

Macradenia R.Brown 1822 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Cymbidieae SUBTRIBE Oncidiinae

This genus of 11 species has small single leafed round psuedobulbs that grow epiphytically in Florida, the West Indies, Mexico and south to Colombia and Peru. This genus is characterized by having elongate pseudobulbs with a single leaf, a basal, simple or branched, usually pendant but at times erect, racemose inflorescence with medium sized flowers with equalsized sepals and petals, a lip that is totally connected to the base of the three lobed column, two broad lateral lobes nad a narrow elongate midlobe. The column has a well developed clynandrium with a prominent rostellum. The Anther is elongated and has 2 small globose pollina connected to an elongate stipe and a small viscidium. They should be mounted on tree fern or cork to accommodate the pendant growth habit and inflorescence. Moderate shade and careful watering, watching for new growth before more water and fertilizer.

Macroclinium Barb.&Rodr. 1882 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae , TRIBE Cymbidieae SUBTRIBE Oncidiinae

There are to date 42 species in this New World genus that is allied to Notylia. The plants occur at elevations of 400 to 1900 meters and such are all hot to cool growing epiphytes that appreciate abundant year round water. They are characterized by having a small fan-shaped plant composed of compressed leaves and sheaths from which an inflorescence arises giving rise to flowers with the sepals and petals alike and usually sagging, a lip that is long stalked, usually with a elliptic blade. The shape of he lipand how it is situated with the column is one of the distinguishing features between species in this genus. The column is elongate, terete and swollen at the apex and the anther is located on the dorsal side, with the stigma being a narrow longitudinal slit. These plants are commonly refered to as twig epiphytes and seem to be that they are not long lived in cultivation.

This miniature to small sized, monopodial epiphytic genus occurs in Thailand, penninsular Malaysia, Borneo, Java and Sumatra and has 9 species that were segregated from Pteroceras because of the simultaneously opening flowers, a lip with a distinct claw, the base set at an angle to the column foot and a long and slender rostellum that is almost as long as the column and they have 2, globose, porate pollina.

Three hundred species make up this world wide occuring terrestrial and occasional epiphytic genus that is concentrated the most around SE Asia but occurs on all continents save Australia. The genus is characterized by being medium sized terrestrials or epiphytes with generally psedobulbous stems surrounded by leaf sheaths and soft textured leaves. The terminal, racemose inflorescence often carries the flowers at the apex in an umbel-like situation of a few to many flowers that are small with a lip that enfolds the short, footless column which carries 4 pollina with no caudicles or stipe.

Masdevallia Ruiz and Pavon 1794 SUBFAMILY Epidendroideae, TRIBE Epidendreae, SUBTRIBE Pleurothallidinae

According to Carl Luer. This genus is made up of miniature to medium sized epiphytic or lithophytic plants with creeping rhizomes, an erect short ramicaul with a single narrow coriaceous leaf, the inflorescence arises from an annulus that is a considerable distance below the abscission layer. The sepals are variously connate and commonly with tails. The petals are small with a callous margin often developed into a tooth. The lip is more or less ligulate and hinged to an incurved extension from the apex of the column foot. The column is terete with a hooded ventral anther with 2 pollina. This genus are as a whole, cool to cold growers that do best with a fine mix in pots. They like low light, high humidity and watering throughout the year but be careful not to overwater. Masdevallia is a new world genus of 600+ species and are found from Mexico to the southern Andes. The highest concentration of species is found from Venezuela to Peru through the Andes foothills and highlands.
