Based on numerous field trips conducted over the last decade, populations of P. fairrieanum and P. venustum were located in Bhutan, and Vegetation analyses and cluster dendrograms of the plant species composition indicated the presence of three forest types with distinct species compositions.
A new small-flowered Cyrtochilum species (Orchidaceae: Oncidiinae) from the Condor mountains in Ecuador
A new small-flowered species of Cyrtochilum from the isolated range of the Condor mountains in Ecuador is described and illustrated with a line drawing and a photograph of the holotype, bringing the groups together into one polymorphic but genetically monophyletic genus.
New Combinations and Transfers to Odontoglossum Oncidiinae (Orchidaceae): Avoid Creating New Names
A generic transfer of eight species from Oncidium to Odontoglossum is made here, supported by molecular and morphologic evidence, and makes it possible to maintain a monophyletic genus OdontOGlossum without creating any new generic names.

A new spotted Chiloschista (Orchidaceae: Aeridinae) from Bhutan
A new species of Chiloschista from a restricted area in Bhutan is described and illustrated, which has similarly colored flowers and the lack of a glandular and pubescent, erect and curved callus lobe inside the lip, which is generally seen in other similarly colored species of this genus.

A new Masdevallia (Orchidaceae: Pleurothallidinae) from a deforested area in the Huanuco region of Peru
The new species differs from several more or less morphologically similar species by a combination of features, including the rather fleshy leaves and the bell-shaped flowers covered internally with magenta to white pubescence.
