About this book

The 33 taxa included in these pleurothallid genera are not closely related, but each has a similar pollination mechanism. In each, a stimulus causes the lip to rise quickly. The pollinator is trapped temporarily between the lip, column, and petals. An escape requires the pollinator to brush past the stigma, rostellum, and anther. Systematics, keys and species descriptions are given, together with plates and distribution maps.
