A list of all Orchidaceae recorded for Myanmar is presented, primarily based on many years of research in herbaria and libraries around the world, supplemented by recent fieldwork in various parts of Myanmar. As such, it is intended to form the basis for a treatment of Orchidaceae in the new flora of Myanmar project. A total of 1037 species in 152...

Continuing studies of Malesian Orchidaceae find that it is necessary to subsume Platystyliparis into Alatiliparis requiring nine combinations, propose a small flowered but showy new Dendrobium, expand the circumscription of Oberonioides, requiring five combinations, move Calanthe subhamata to Styloglossum, and propose a new Tropidia.

Herbarium and literature studies of various orchids from the Malesian floristic zone reveal some new species, synonymy, and the need for a few nomenclatural proposals. Thus, the synonymy of Cestichis halconensis is elaborated; Cymboglossum is found to be the older name for Ascidieria, requiring 8 transfers; Dendrobium appendiculoides is reduced to...

Three Malesian species of Dendrobium are discussed regarding their typification and identity. Thus D. curvum is found to be based on a mixture and after lectotypification is proposed as the earlier name for D. rappardii; the previously obscure D. dactyliferum is found to be an earlier name for D. pandaneti; and D. triflorum is found to be a commonl...

Article
The genus Rhomboda Lindley (1857: 181), belonging to the family Orchidaceae (Orchidoideae: Cranichideae: Goodyerinae), was first described by John Lindley with a single species, viz. R. longifolia Lindley (1857: 181). Bentham (1881: 346) reduced Rhomboda to Hetaeria Blume (1825: 409), but Hooker (1890: 109) transferred it to Zeuxine Lindley (1826:...

Three orchid species from the Malesian region, Appendicula floribunda, Liparis elegans, and Dendrobium comatum, are recorded for the first time from Vietnam. These findings show a distinct relationship between the orchid floras of the two regions. More orchid exploration in Phu Quoc Island will reveal additional new records for the orchid flora of...

A reinstatement, three new combinations, and one new species are proposed for orchids that occur in India and Sri Lanka. The name that is reinstated is Dendrobium crispum, with D. peguanum treated as a synonym; the new combinations are Cylindrolobus lindleyi, Peristylus caranjensis, and Trichotosia thwaitesii; and Dendrobium turbinatum is proposed...

Subtribe Goodyerinae Ridley (1907: 12) is a group of about 730 species (in ca. 35 genera), of mostly terrestrial orchids with a Pantropical to circumboreal distribution. Most species (ca. 500 in 30 genera) are found in the Old World, usually in montane forests. Generally they are known as jewel orchids because some taxa [especially in the genera An...

... Common name: Flecked hyacinth orchid. That genus has been widely demonstrated to be paraphyletic (Cameron 2005;Pridgeon et al. 2005;Tsutsumi et al. 2007;Li et al. 2013Li et al. , 2020Su et al. 2015;Tang et al. 2015;Kumar et al. 2022). Cameron (2005) in the first molecular phylogenetic analysis of Malaxideae demonstrated that the traditional interpretations of Liparis and Malaxis Sol. ...
... Most of the reports reviewed in this paper were on Dendrobium, which is one of the most complicated taxa in terms of species nomenclature and classification [96]. Currently, there are more than 1000 species in this genus, and new species and varieties are described frequently from tropical Asia [97,98]. Diagnostic characters which allow to identify particular Dendrobium species are related to flower morphology and therefore plants cannot be correctly classified in the vegetative stage [99]. ...
... Bulbophyllum lemniscatoides was reported from Myanmar by Kress et al. (2003), Nyan Tun (2014), and Averyanov et al. (2019). However, this report was found erroneous by Ormerod et al. (2021) as this is a misidentification of its closely similar species Bulbophyllum lemniscatum C.S.P.Parish ex Hook.f. In the Philippines, we will only report its occurrence in Zamboanga del Sur on the island of Mindanao, as the record in Negros of Visayas by Pelser et al. (2011) is based only on photos taken from a cultivated material without exact or sure locality. ...
... 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]. ...
... f., this species has originally assigned to the member of that genus (Xu et al., 2010). Recently it was considered to be congeneric with a long-lost and rediscovered species in Myanmar formerly classified in the genus Arundina or Dilochia (Kang et al., 2019;Kurzweil et al., 2020). Owing to remarkable vegetative similarity in morphology, the species has long been mistakenly identified as a member of other genera for over 100 years. ...
... Mycaranthes Blume (Orchidaceae) was established by Blume (1825) and includes around 40 species, distributed from Nepal to Papua New Guinea (Ormerod et al., 2019). The genus mostly comprises epiphytes lacking pseudobulbs, terete stems and more-or-less long narrowly distichous leaves. ...
... The genus Stichorkis had been relegated to the synonymy of Liparis Rich. s.l. for a long time, until it was resurrected to a separate genus based on molecular and morphological data and commonly recognized by various authors (Tang et al. 2015;Naïve and Ormerod 2019;Li et al. 2020). Stichorkis is composed of epiphytic or lithophytic species that inhabit humid montane forests in limestone hills. ...
... Asia, Australia, Madagascar, Africa, Central and South America, and the Caribbean [2][3][4]. Calanthe species are evergreen or deciduous plants, terrestrial (rarely epipetric or epiphytic) with thick roots, small oval pseudobulbs, highly ridged leaves, and upright, occasionally arching flowering stems [5]. Their flowers arise from the basal leaf with showy, white, yellow, or pink colors with a resupinate opening, ranging from small, medium and large [6]. ...
... According to morphological data by Kikuchi and Tsukaya (2017) and the highly supported positions of Kalimantanorchis inside Tropidia in our phylogenetic trees, we reject both grounds (i.e. the unique subterranean tuberous structure of Kalimantanorchis and the result of the molecular phylogenetic analysis based on matK) for the establishment Kalimantanorchis as a distinct genus suggested by Tsukaya et al. (2011). We support the synonymisation of Kalimantanorchis with Tropidia, as proposed by Ormerod and Juswara (2019). ...
... In May 2021, the cultivated specimens have produced flowers enabling us to undertake extensive morphological examination. After careful investigation of its morphology and comparison with protologues and relevant literatures (Chen et al. 2009, Pridgeon et al. 2009, Kurzweil & Ormerod 2018, Ormerod et al. 2021) as well as digitized type specimens of ...
