SECTION Beccariana Pfitz. 1889

Epiphytes with creeping rhizomes with shoots not fused to the small to distinct compared to the size of the plant pseudobulbs carrying a single, persistent leaf that blooms on a, 2 to many flowered, subumbellate, congested or elongate racemose or single flowered with an abortive second flower present inflorescence with the basal node of the pedicel level with the attachment of the floral bract. There are 3 to 10 bracts on the peduncle and the rachis, if present, is not to hardly thickened. The floral bracts are amplexicaul or not. The flowers are resupinate to non-resupinate and have a free dorsal sepal with 3 to 19 veins, the laterals are the same but 1 to 1.4 times longer and are usually free. The petals have 1 to 9 veins. The mobile lip has a thin ligament and is usually undivided. The column has a stigma that proximally is not protruding and there are usually not lateral lobes near the apex. The stelida are more or less 1/2 the length of the column or shorter and they are entire to erose along the upper margin with a tooth or a wing along the lower margin. The anterior surface of the anther is not concave and the anterior margin can be drawn out or not. There are 4 pollina with or without a single stipe.

There are about 65 species in peat swamp forests at elevations up to 800 meters in Bhutan, Borneo, Sulawesi and Papua New Guinea.

SECTION Sestochilos differs from SECTION Beccariana in the base of the pedicel which is more than 1 times its diameter distant from the floral bract attachment.

Entries below with an *asterix are listed in publications by J J Vermeullen and so are more likely correct than ones without. Species with a question mark in front, seem to me to not conform and so please use with caution. If a sectional name has a "`" in front then it is a complete section with all the known species represented.

CAUTION!!! Some species within SECTION Sestochilos certainly belong here but at this time I do not have any verification of which ones they may be, available to me.
