Myanmar is known for its high species richness of genus Gastrochilus ; however, most of them lack proper information for taxonomic revision. During four years of field investigation in Myanmar, two new distributional records were encountered, namely, G. arunachalensis and G. corymbosus and one species, i.e. G. pechei was rediscovered after its orig...

The genus Sauvetrea Szlach. (Orchidaceae) was segregated from Maxillaria sensu lato in 2007. It embraces a group of from 10 to nearly 20 species, all initially defined as Maxillaria sect. Trigonae. Sauvetrea can be easily distinguished from closely related Rhetinantha M.A.Blanco by the lip callus. During the revision of the materials stored in AMES...

... Thanks to its high morphological diversity and brightly colored flowers, it has potential horticultural value [15]. Since the latest preliminary revision of Gastrochilus [32], nearly 20 new species have been found in south China (Chongqing, Yunnan, Taiwan), Vietnam, Myanmar, Nepal and India [33][34][35][36][37][38][39][40][41][42][43][44][45]. Additionally, Haraella Kudo and Luisiopsis C.S.Kumar and P.C.S.Kumar have been transferred to Gastrochilus [46,47]. ...

Tropical and subtropical Asia are major orchid diversity and endemism centers. However, the evolutionary dynamics of orchids in these areas remain poorly studied. Gastrochilus D. Don, a species-rich orchid genus from tropical and subtropical Asian forests, was employed to investigate the issue. We firstly used eight DNA regions to reconstruct the phylogeny and estimate the divergence times within Gastrochilus. We inferred the ancestral ranges and conducted a diversification analysis based on empirical and simulated data. Subsequently, we assessed the ancestral niche state and tested for phylogenetic signals in the evolution of niche conditions. Our results suggested that the most recent common ancestor of Gastrochilus occurred in the subtropical area of the East Asiatic region in the late Miocene (8.13 Ma). At least eight dispersal events and four vicariant events were inferred to explain the current distribution of Gastrochilus, associated with the global cooling from the Plio-Pleistocene. The genus experienced a slowly decreasing diversification rate since its origin, and no significant correlation between current niches and phylogenetic relatedness was observed. The diversification of Gastrochilus was attributed to accumulation through time, integrated with the intensification of the Asian Monsoon system during the Plio-Pleistocene, pollination, and epiphytism.
... Many have been widely used as principal components in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and thus have been extensively investigated and found to be a rich source of unusual secondary metabolites [7]. Gastrochilus, a small genus of monopodial herbs in Orchidaceae, comprises approximately 62 species, mainly found in Southeast Asia [8]. Gastrochilus bellinus (Rchb.f.) Kuntze ("Suea Dam" in Thai and "Wat-Won-Thit-Khwa" in Myanmar) has stems enclosed in basal sheaths of leaves. ...

Four new phenanthrene derivatives, gastrobellinols A-D (1–4), were isolated from the methanolic extract of Gastrochilus bellinus (Rchb.f.) Kuntze, along with eleven known phenolic compounds including agrostophyllin (5), agrostophyllidin (6), coniferyl aldehyde (7), 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde (8), agrostophyllone (9), gigantol (10), 4-(methoxylmethyl)phenol (11), syringaldehyde (12), 1-(4′-hydroxybenzyl)-imbricartin (13), 6-methoxycoelonin (14), and imbricatin (15). Their structures were determined by spectroscopic methods. Each isolate was evaluated for α-glucosidase inhibitory activity. Compounds 1, 2, 3, 7, 9, 13, and 15 showed higher activity than the drug acarbose. Gastrobellinol C (3) exhibited the strongest α-glucosidase inhibition with an IC50 value of 45.92 μM. A kinetic study of 3 showed competitive inhibition on the α-glucosidase enzyme. This is the first report on the phytochemical constituents and α-glucosidase inhibitory activity of G. bellinus.

Morphological variation in Gastrochilus calceolaris (Buch.-Ham. ex Sm.) D.Don has been studied based on live and herbarium specimens. As a result, Gastrochilus carnosus Z.H.Tsi and Gastrochilus garhwalensis Z.H.Tsi are treated here as heterotypic synonyms of Gastrochilus calceolaris. Similarly, Gastrochilus corymbosus A.P.Das & S.Chanda has been synonymised to Gastrochilus distichus (Lindl.) Kuntze. A note on typification of Gastrochilus calceolaris has been provided and the report of Gastrochilus changjiangensis Q.Liu & M.Z.Huang from India has been found as misidentification for Gastrochilus linearifolius Z.H.Tsi & Garay.
