Aphyllorchis, commonly Pauper Orchids, is a genus of 30 species of terrestrial leafless orchids native to South Asia, Southeast Asia and Australia. [more]
Cephalanthera (Ce-pha-lan-thÃ©-ra), abbreviated Ceph in horticultural trade, is a genus of, mostly, terrestrial orchids. Members of this genus have rhizomes rather than tubers. About 15 species are currently recognised, several of them common in Europe, for example the Sword-leaved Helleborine C. longifolia. Most others are native to Asia, ranging from the Caucasus, e.g. C. caucasica, to Japan, e.g. the Bamboo-leaved Silver Orchid C. longibracteata. The Chinese species C. gracilis was only described in 2002. The only species found in North America is the Phantom Orchid or Snow Orchid C. austiniae. Ecologically, this species is partially myco-heterotrophic. Some of the Eurasian species hybridise. [more]
Epipactis Zinn, 1757, or Helleborine is a genus of terrestrial orchids comprised of approximately 70 species. This genus is abbreviated as Epcts in horticultural trade. [more]
Listera is a genus of orchids which are known commonly as twayblades, the only member of subtribe Listerinae. Twayblade orchids are native to cooler temperate regions worldwide, including the Arctic. It produces raceme inflorescences with flowers in shades of maroon, purple, green or dull pink. The lip of each flower is prominently forked or two-lobed. The genus was named for the English naturalist Martin Lister. [more]
At least 23 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Palmorchis.
