ABSTRACT É apresentada a relação atualizada de Orchidaceae para o Distrito Federal (DF), a unidade da federação onde se situa a capital brasileira, localizada no centro do país. São reconhecidos 72 gêneros e 254 táxons (246 espécies e oito táxons subespecíficos), dos quais 17 (6,7%) são conhecidos apenas localmente. Os gêneros mais significativos no DF são Habenaria (74 espécies e três táxons subespecíficos), Cyrtopodium (17 espécies), Cleistes (13 espécies) e a subtribo Spiranthinae (11 gêneros com 34 espécies e dois táxons subespecíficos). Gêneros como Epidendrum (oito espécies), Pleurothallis (sete espécies), Oncidium (seis espécies) e Maxillaria (três espécies) são abundantes na Mata Atlântica no sudeste brasileiro, mas pouco representados na região. Cerca de 73% das Orchidaceae do DF apresentam hábito terrestre, o que contrasta marcadamente com a Mata Atlântica e a região Amazônica, onde predominam espécies epifíticas. Dentro do Cerrado, o DF representa o local mais bem amostrado e com o maior número de espécies conhecidas, compreendendo cerca de 51% das orquídeas listadas para todo o bioma. Esta relação tem como objetivo subsidiar a monografia desta família para a flora do Distrito Federal.

    ABSTRACT: Six species of the genus Encyclia are accepted in the Distrito Federal, Goiás and Tocantins (Brazil): E. argentinensis, E. chapadensis, E. cyperifolia, E. gonzalezii, E. linearifolioides and E. osmantha. All the specimens were collected in the Cerrado biome. In total 42 names were analyzed. Two synonyms, four lectotypes and two epitypes are proposed. A name is presented as invalid, four are superfluous and four are "nomen nudum". Thirteen names are excluded from treatment and twenty-one are presented as invalid and three are registered as a possible occurrence.

    ABSTRACT: Orchidaceae was recently pointed as the most representative family in Atlantic forest. Based on the lack of data and the fragmentation with lost of diversity, this paper provides a checklist of the orchids in some fragments of Atlantic Rainforest in Usina São José (USJ), Pernambuco, Brazil. The study area includes six forest fragments in Igarassu, Pernambuco. Fieldwork was carried out from December/2008 to March/2010. The vouchers were deposited at UFP herbarium. Orchidaceae is represented by 27 species and 19 genera which Epidendrum L. (4 spp.) and Scaphyglottis Poepp. & Endl.(3 spp.) were the richest in number of species. This work increases 20 spp. to that recorded for USJ in previous checklist. Three species are recorded here for the first time for the Atlantic rainflorest, and one is a new record to Northeastern Brazil. Cattleya granulosa Lindl. and Zygostates bradei (Schltr.) Garay are considered threatened. The Piedade remain is noteworthy for having 26 spp., which is a RPPN. The data shows the importance of the area to conservation of the biodiversity in the State.

    ABSTRACT: This work presents a floristic survey of Orchidaceae in Morro do Chapéu, municipality situated in the Chapada Diamantina, Bahia, Brazil. Fifty three species in twenty nine genera are hereby recognized. Epidendrum (five species), Gomesa (five), Encyclia (four), and Habenaria (four) were registered as the most diverse genera in the region. Morro do Chapéu had twenty five exclusive species compared with other regional surveys in the Chapada Diamantina, contributing with four new records for this area (Galeandra beyrichii, Gomesa barbata, Habenaria josephensis and Prescottia oligantha). Fifteen species listed do not occur in other compared areas of Eastern Brazil, being only distributed over the Cadeia do Espinhaço. Differences among vegetation types, territorial ranges, anthropical degrees and samples, seem to interfere with the floristic similarity of these areas. An identification key, descriptions, commentaries and illustrations of species are provided.
