Neotypes for three species of Bletia (Orchidaceae) described by Lexarza, B. campanulata, B. coccinea and B. punctata are here designated. Their main diagnostic morphological characters are discussed based on herbarium and living material.

    Based on examination of protologues and herbarium material, combined with field observations, we suggest that Zeuxine bidupensis Averyanov should be considered a heterotypic synonym of Z. agyokuana Fukuyama. Thus, the known distribution of Z. agyokuana includes China, India, Japan, Thailand and...

    Sobralia (Orchidaceae) is a genus of about 150 species distributed in Mesoamerica and tropical and subtropical regions of South America. Its species are most often tall plants with single, showy but fugacious flowers. As the result of a morphological study based on herbarium material examined by...

    The morphological study of the herbarium material representing Epistephium (Orchidaceae, Vanilloideae) led to the discovery of two groups of specimens that significantly differ from all known species of the genus. The results of literature data study and of comparative analysis of those and...

    Although the genus concept of Phyllosticta s. str. (teleomorph: Guignardia) as defined by van der Aa is widely accepted, the species concept is still controversial because it is often based on the morphology on host plants. In this study, the culture characteristics within Phyllosticta s.str....

    The pollination process in Trigonidium obtusum Lindl. (Epidendroideae: Maxillariinae) is documented. The flowers are pollinated by sexually excited drones of Plebeia droryana (Meliponinae). When attempting to copulate either with sepals or petals, these bees slip on the waxy perianth surface and...

    Sobralia vallecaucana, section Abbreviatae from Valle del Cauca, Colombia, is described and illustrated on the basis of morphological and molecular study. The analyses of the ITS and matK reveal close relationship between the new species and Sobralia klotzscheana. However, S. vallecaucana can be...

    Tillandsia bryoides was sunken into the synonmy of T. tricholepis because all the elements of the lectotype (P. Lorentz 128, BM) belong to the latter species. However, there are many vouchers from different herbaria (some of them cited as reference material in several publications) previously...

    The seven species currently placed in the genus Nashia are revised, based on the near totality of the (scant) material found in the world's herbaria. A morphological analysis of, in particular, the calyx and fruit reveals the heterogeneity of that genus. As a result, Nashia is reduced to its...
