Tropidieae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
The Orchidaceae are a diverse and widespread family of flowering plants, with blooms that are often colourful and fragrant, commonly known as the orchid family.
The Pleurothallidinae are a neotropical subtribe of plants of the orchid family (Orchidaceae) including 29 genera in more than 4000 species.
In the botanical classification of plants, Aeridinae is a subtribe of the Tribe Vandeae whose representatives all have a monopodial growth habit and do not possess pseudobulbs.
Cypripedioideae is a subfamily of orchids commonly known as lady's slipper orchids, lady slipper orchids or slipper orchids. Cypripedioideae includes the genera Cypripedium, Mexipedium, Paphiopedilum, Phragmipedium and Selenipedium. They are characterised by the slipper-shaped pouches of the flowers – the pouch traps insects so they are forced to climb up past the staminode, behind which they collect or deposit pollinia, thus fertilizing the flower. There are approximately 165 species in the subfamily.
The Orchidoideae, or the orchidoid orchids, are a subfamily of the orchid family (Orchidaceae).
The Oncidiinae is a subtribe within the Orchidaceae that consists of a number of genera that are closely related.
Epidendroideae is a subfamily of plants in the orchid family, Orchidaceae. Epidendroideae is larger than all the other orchid subfamilies together, comprising more than 15,000 species in 576 genera. Most epidendroid orchids are tropical epiphytes, typically with pseudobulbs. There are, however, some terrestrials such as Epipactis and even a few myco-heterotrophs, which are parasitic upon mycorrhizal fungi.
The Cymbidieae is a tribe of plants within the family Orchidaceae.
Laeliinae is a Neotropical subtribe including 40 orchid genera, such as Brassavola, Laelia and Cattleya. The genus Epidendrum is the largest within this subtribe, containing about 1500 species. This is followed by the genus Encyclia, with over 120 species.
Arethuseae is a mid-sized tribe of orchids in the subfamily Epidendroideae. This tribe was initially categorized by John Lindley in 1840. Its largest subtribes are Arethusinae and Coelogyninae.
The Vandeae is a large monophyletic tribe within the family of orchids.
Dendrobieae is a tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae, in the family Orchidaceae.
Cranichideae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Orchidoideae.
Goodyerinae is an orchid subtribe in the tribe Cranichideae.
Spiranthinae is an orchid subtribe in the tribe Cranichideae.
The Coelogyninae are an orchid subtribe in the tribe Arethuseae.
Calypsoinae is an orchid subtribe in the tribe Epidendreae of subfamily Epidendroideae. It has previously been recognized as tribe Calypsoeae in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
Malaxideae is an orchid tribe in the subfamily Epidendroideae.
Maxillariinae is an orchid subtribe in the tribe Cymbidieae. It was formerly treated as the tribe Maxillarieae, and divided into a number of subtribes.
Mark Alwin Clements (b. 1949) is an Australian botanist and orchidologist. He obtained his doctorate at the Australian National University defending his thesis entitled Reproductive Biology in relation to phylogeny of the Orchidaceae, especially the tribe Diurideae.
