Orchidaceae, I. la Croix & P.J. Cribb. Flora Zambesiaca 11:1. 1995

Morphology General Habit
Epiphytic or lithophytic herb with sympodial growth.
Vegetative Multiplication Rhizomes
Rhizomes creeping, often woody, sometimes branched.
Vegetative Multiplication Pseudobulbs
Pseudobulbs each comprising 1 internode (representing the main axis ofa sympodial branch), clustered or spaced out along the rhizome, 1–2(3)-leaved at the apex.
Morphology Leaves
Leaves mostly coriaceous or fleshy, rarely thin-textured.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Inflorescences
Rhachis sometimes swollen or flattened; flowers white, cream, yellow, green, orange or purple, ± fleshy. Inflorescences arising from base of the pseudobulb, racemose or rarely umbellate, (1)few- to many-flowered.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Calyx
Sepals usually free and subequal, the lateral sepals united at the base to the column foot to form an obscure mentum.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Corolla
Petals usually smaller than the sepals.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Labellum
Lip often much smaller than the sepals, hinged to end of the column foot, usually motile, often fleshy and tongue-like, sometimes fringed with long or short hairs.
Morphology Reproductive morphology Flowers Column
Column short, usually with apical lateral extensions (stelidia), and often winged.
