China is rich in Paphiopedilum resources, represented by 27 native species and many natural hybrids, as well as some infraspecific taxa, accounting for over one third of the total 79 species recognized in this orchid genus. The Genus Paphiopedilum in China is mainly a taxonomic treatment of Chinese species based mostly on living material. In addition, the generic history, morphology, reproduction, ecology, geographical distribution, conservation, hybridization, cultivation, propagation, diseases and pests are also briefly introduced.
