(34), Dressleria Dodson (11), Galeandra Lindl. Database name.  Dressler's 1993 book had considerable influence on later work. It is now known to occur in Papua New Guinea as well. The numerous finely split genera (at least in terms of morphological distinctions) currently recognized in Spiranthinae were inherited from previous workers, but to the outsider these genera are difficult to recognize. Karremans (2014) proposed a new genus, Lankesteriana Karremans, for a group of species related to Anathaliis barbulata (Lindl.) Aeridinae have presented a large number of problems throughout their history, and several major shifts have occurred. (5), Bracisepalum J.J.Sm. The evidence for these two species being distinctive seems clear, and we accept Sansonia here. Mark W. Chase, Kenneth M.Cameron, Russell L. Barrett, John V. Freudenstein DNA data and Orchidaceae Systematics : A new Phylogenetic Classification by 1998). This group of species was also described by Ryan & Oakeley (2003) as Ida A.Ryan & Oakely, but it had been preceded by Sudamerlycaste; it was treated by Pridgeon et al. Orchidaceae is a member of Asparagales, an order of monocotyledonous flowering plants that also includes the asparagus and iris families. (5), Eleorchis Maek.

This reduces the number of monospecific genera in this subtribe considerably, but three new monospecific genera have been added: Hsenhsua (Jin et al., 2014), Neolindleya (Efimov, Lauri & Bateman, 2009) and Tsaiorchis. This is the most comprehensive classification at the moment, relying heavily on morphology and a few key characters, such as anther configuration and pollinarium structure. When Dressler published his classification in 1993, the relationships of orchids to other monocots was still unknown. (16), Polycycnis Rchb.f. As a result of the lack of clarity over the limits of Habenaria, we find the recognition of small segregates, such as Dithrix (Hook.f.) (1), Thecopus† Seidenf. data), and it is likely that a modest number of additional generic changes in Spiranthinae will be required, although we hope that a modest reduction in the number of genera included will be possible. Elleanthus C.Presl (111), Epilyna Schltr. In Pleurothallidinae, most of the upheaval caused by the application of molecular data had been included in Chase et al. It may well be that, in the longer term, recognition of such segregates will prevail, but more discussion is required before a consensus to make such changes is reached. Relative to Chase et al. (2003). The first molecular phylogenetic study to include a substantial sample of orchids was published in 1999. Adrorhizon Hook.f. (2003). Florally, Discyphus has two separate, cup-shaped stigmas, whereas, in Cranichidinae and other Spiranthinae, there is a single stigmatic surface. ex L. (21), Pecteilis Raf. (45), Megalorchis H.Perrier (1), Neobolusia Schltr. The circumscriptions provided in Blanco et al. Chysis, however, falls with moderate support as sister to Bletiinae and, as none of the other studies strongly refutes this placement, we treat it as a member of Bletiinae, which is otherwise unchanged. In 2003, a new phylogenetic classification divided Orchidaceae into five subfamilies: Apostasioideae, Vanilloideae, Cypripedioideae, Orchidoideae, and Epidendroideae. (589), Myoxanthus Poepp. Cleistes has long been known not to be monophyletic (Cameron & Chase, 1999; Cameron, 2004, 2006; Pansarin, Salatino & Salatino, 2008), and so Pansarin & de Barros (2008) described Cleistesiopsis for the North American clade that does not go with the tropical American species, including the type species, C. grandiflora (Aubl). They were recognized by Dressler (1993), who reported that the pollinia were similar to those of Agrostophyllinae and the seeds were similar to those of Polystachya (see below). In Phalaenopsis are included Grussia M.Wolff, Hygrochilus Pfitzer, Lesliea Seidenf., Nothodoritis Z.H.Tsi, Ornithochilus (Lindl.) The Orchids: Natural History and Classification. Devogelia may represent a distinct tribe, but, until fresh material can be examined and DNA analysed, its position must remain uncertain. (2), Bolusiella Schltr. Pridgeon et al. (2014) (with an emphasis on Asian taxa) indicated that many such genera are intermingled with species of polyphyletic Habenaria. (1), Summerhayesia P.J.Cribb (2), Taeniorrhiza Summerh. (2014). & Ormerod (1), Papilionanthe Schltr. (2005). (2013). (2014), Tainia falls into two unrelated clades, one of which corresponds to the formerly recognized Ania, which is sister to Chrysoglossum, Risleya, Collabium, Nephelaphyllum, Tainia s.s. and Hancockia, and so Ania is reinstated here. would not be adequate.

(2003) were included in Epidendrum in Pridgeon et al. Pachites is not related to Satyrium or Huttonaea, as previously hypothesized on morphological grounds, but instead appears to be sister to Coryciinae plus Orchidinae, including Huttonaea (Bytebier et al., 2008), with the last weakly supported as sister to Disa (including Herschelianthe, Monadenia and Schizodium as before; Bytebier, Bellstedt & Linder, 2007).

The increased resolution and content of larger clades, recognized here as tribes, do not support the ‘phylads’ in Epidendroideae proposed 22 years ago by Dressler.

The following subfamilies are recognized: Cladistically, the interrelationships of these subfamilies can be shown in a phylogenetic tree as follows: The subfamily Apostasioideae belongs to the orchid family (Orchidaceae). and Chondradenia Maxim. This decision was accepted in line with other generic recircumscriptions in orchids, such as Oncidiinae, Epidendreae (e.g. (2), Warreopsis Garay (4), Zygopetalum Hook. (3), Chaubardiella Garay (8), Cheiradenia Lindl. In Pridgeon et al. Collabiinae, also probably related to Vandeae, are now elevated to a tribe along with Podochileae. (1), Chelonistele Pfitzer (13), Coelogyne Lindl. It reflects the considerable progress in orchid taxonomy that had been made since Dressler published his classification in 1993. (17), Braemia Jenny (1), Cirrhaea Lindl. (2), Ossiculum P.J.Cribb & Laan (1), Plectrelminthus Raf. The only known species displays a puzzling combination of characters, seemingly amalgamating features from Eulophiinae, Malaxidinae and Collabieae (all Epidendroideae). (2005) and Wu, Raven & Hong (2009). (19), Prasophyllum R.Br. Hemipiliopsis L.B.Luo & S.C.Chen (Luo & Chen, 2003), which had been thought to be related to Habenaria or Brachycorythis based on morphology (Luo, Zhu & Kurzweil, 2005; Pridgeon et al., 2014), falls within Hemipilia in Jin et al. A short discussion of the family’s position in the angiosperm phylogeny is supplemened by a summary of its past and present classification in a phylogenetic context. (4), Encyclia Hook. 1883. Tsaiorchis was considered as a synonym of Amitostigma Schltr. (117), Pseudolaelia Porto & Brade (18), Psychilis Raf. With the publication of the last volume of Genera Orchidacearum in early 2014 (Pridgeon et al., 2014), Orchidaceae can be considered as one of the best documented of all angiosperm families, but this does not mean that the task of understanding the evolution of this immense family is complete. They are found above the Arctic Circle, in southern Patagonia and even on Macquarie Island, close to Antarctica. The days in which intuition played a major role in such studies are coming to an end. (19), Ponerorchis Rchb.f. & Szlach. Aspasia Salisb. Acanthephippium Blume (13), Ancistrochilus Rolfe (2), Ania Lindl. Although all segregate genera had been proposed by the turn of the 19th century, the sole use of Cypripedium continued until the 1950s, more than 50 years after Rolfe published Phragmipedium (Rolfe, 1896). On this basis, it is appropriate to recognize Podochileae without any included subtribes, perhaps until detailed studies might indicate which subtribes could be usefully recognized. In Epidendroideae, there has been a great deal of change in the generic limits in many tribes/subtribes since Chase et al. Species of this polyphyletic tribe occur in all continents (except Antarctica), but mainly in North and South America and tropical Asia. Des Plantes 2: 68, July – Aug. 1763.. Orchidaceae Juss. (4), Lemurorchis Kraenzl. (3), Daiotyla* Dressler (4), Dichaea Lindl. It has a single, sessile, cordate leaf that clasps the base of the inflorescence and lies flat on the substrate, whereas nearly all other members of Spiranthinae have two or more cauline leaves. Thaia was originally described from Thailand as holomycotrophic (Seidenfaden, 1975), but, when it was rediscovered (Schuiteman et al., 2009), it was found to be leaf-bearing and green, and therefore probably autotrophic. (2014) demonstrated that the two are distinct; however, some species of the latter needed to be transferred to the former (Kocyan & Schuiteman, 2013). Five is a reasonable number of subfamilies and is easily remembered by everyone, but, in other large families, the number of subfamilies has been greatly increased as a result of molecular studies and a tendency to split in order to maintain some long-recognized subfamilies, making these systems much more difficult for students and non-specialists to use.

In a more thoroughly sampled study, Cameron & van den Berg (in press) found that, with 18S rDNA and two mitochondrial DNA regions, the position of Pogoniopsis was more likely to be in accord with its morphology, and we thus place it near Triphora here. (1), Leporella A.S.George (1), Lyperanthus R.Br. Cymbidiinae (Batista et al., 2014) should include at least Acriopsis, Thecopus and Thecostele, in addition to those genera included here in Chase et al. (2005), with the addition of heteromycotrophic Pogoniopsis (see Vanilloideae above). Compared to previous classifications, more of the tribes and subtribes of Dressler were monophyletic, but not all of them were supported by subsequent studies. The word orchid is derived… (2003), with the exception of the resurrection of Nemaconia (Soto Arenas, Salazar & van den Berg, 2007). The striking characteristics of the vandoids are a cellular pollinium stalk (= stipe), superposed pollinia and the unique development of the incumbent anther, that bends early in development. Cladistic analyses, especially those based on molecular data, provide a firmer basis for classification than intuition, and the certainty (or uncertainty) of conclusions can be quantified by measures of statistical support.
