Bulbophyllum trongquyetii is described as new for science from Vietnam. Detailed morphological description, illustration, data on distribution, and phenology are provided. Described species resembles B. nipondhii but differs in the bigger size of plant, longer inflorescence, and uniform yellow or reddish-orange flowers. It can be also compared with B. thaiorum and B. farreri but easily distinguished by the bigger size of plant and flowers, as well as smooth or sparsely papillose lateral sepals.

In morphology, L. taiwaniana can be clearly distinguished from L. nigricans by having longer peduncles, rachis, and internodes, slightly narrower sepals and petals, indistinctly 3-lobed labellum, pale brown, ascending capsules, and a column fused more than half with the labellum 2018c).

Diversity and taxonomy of the mycoheterotrophic genus Lecanorchis (Orchidaceae) in Vietnam is reappraised. Four species are confirmed, including two new records, L. moritae Suetsugu & T.C. Hsu and L. taiwaniana S.S. Ying. In addition, the occurrence of L. nigricans Honda in Vietnam is supported by image records, but further confirmation is still needed. Data of nomenclature, ecology, phenology, distribution, voucher specimens and brief taxonomic notes are provided for all Vietnamese species.
... Coding of the characters is detailed in Table 3, with the taxon-character matrix presented as Supplementary Tables S3 (11 categorical characters) and S4 (six continuously variable characters). Character state data were obtained by scoring living plants (from natural populations or in cultivation), herbarium material (dry and liquid-preserved specimens), or from the published literature (Seidenfaden, 1973(Seidenfaden, , 1979Vermeulen and Cootes, 2008;Chen and Vermeulen, 2009;Barretto et al., 2011;Vermeulen et al., 2014Vermeulen et al., , 2015Averyanov et al., 2016;Hu et al., 2017a;Zhai et al., 2017). ...

The Cirrhopetalum alliance is a loosely circumscribed species-rich group within the mega-diverse genus Bulbophyllum (Orchidaceae). The monophyletic status of the alliance has been challenged by previous studies, although established sectional classifications have yet to be tested in a phylogenetic context. We used maximum likelihood and Bayesian analyses of DNA sequence data (cpDNA: matK and psbA-trnH; nrDNA: ITS and Xdh; 3,509 aligned characters; 117 taxa), including all sections putatively associated with the Cirrhopetalum alliance, to reconstruct the phylogeny. We mapped 11 selected categorical floral characters onto the phylogeny to identify synapomorphies and assess potential evolutionary transitions across major clades. Our results unequivocally support the recognition of an amended Cirrhopetalum alliance as a well-supported monophyletic group characterized by clear synapomorphies, following the inclusion of sect. Desmosanthes and the exclusion of five putative Cirrhopetalum-allied sections. Most sections within the Cirrhopetalum alliance are demonstrated to be polyphyletic or paraphyletic, necessitating a new sectional classification. The inclusion of sect. Desmosanthes revolutionizes our understanding of the alliance, with significant evolutionary transitions in floral characters detected. We further investigated six continuously variable characters of the sepals and labellum, and detect phylogenetic conservatism in labellum width and the evolutionary lability of lateral sepal length, which can partly be explained by the different functional roles they play in pollination and pollinator trapping.

Annotated species list includes the valid name, synonyms, type, citations of relevant taxonomic regional publications, data on ecology, phenology and distribution, estimated IUCN Red List status, studied specimens, brief taxonomic notes, and illustrations for each recorded species. Lectotypes for two species, Liparis tenuis, and Dendrobium exsculptum are proposed. When the new data presented in this paper are included, the documented orchid flora of Vietnam reaches at least 1243 species.
