SummaryThe Asiatic orchid species Neolindleya camtschatica (Cham.) Nevski has been omitted from the majority of relevant taxonomic surveys, including the recent Genera Orchidacearum. In most studies where the species has been included, it has been assigned to the species-rich genera Gymnadenia or Platanthera. A few morphologists recognised a new monotypic genus, Neolindleya Kraenzl., to accommodate the species. More recent molecular phylogenetic studies showed barely sufficient molecular… 
Molecular phylogenetics and morphological reappraisal of the Platanthera clade (Orchidaceae: Orchidinae) prompts expansion of the generic limits of Galearis and Platanthera.
TLDR
Resolution of major groups should facilitate future species-level research on the Platanthera clade by combining implicit assessment of morphological divergence with explicit assessment of molecular divergence.
Phylogeny and classification of the East Asian Amitostigma alliance (Orchidaceae: Orchideae) based on six DNA markers
TLDR
A new framework on the complex phylogenetic relationships between Amitostigma and other genera traditionally included in its alliance is provided; based on which, the entire Amitstigma alliance is combined into a morphologically and molecularly circumscribed Amitost Sigma sensu latissimo that also contains seven molecularly circumcised sections.
Just what is a genus? Comparing levels of postzygotic isolation to test alternative taxonomic hypotheses in Orchidaceae subtribe Orchidinae
TLDR
The controversial genus Orchis s.l. is used as a case-study to explore the broader issues that surround the definition and circumscription of genera, and a new approach to selecting among competing formal classifications that focuses on the biological cohesion of the resulting taxa is suggested.
Molecular and morphological phylogenetics of the digitate-tubered clade within subtribe Orchidinae s.s. (Orchidaceae: Orchideae)
TLDR
Here, morphological phylogenetics with Sanger sequencing of nrITS and the plastid region trnL-F is integrated in order to explore phylogenetic relationships and phenotypic character evolution within the digitate-tubered clade of Orchidinae.
Comparative micromorphology of nectariferous and nectarless labellar spurs in selected clades of subtribe Orchidinae (Orchidaceae)
TLDR
It is suggested that the papillae improve pollination because they are a tactile expectation of pollinating insects, and the prominence of striations may be a 'spandrel', simply reflecting the thickness of the overlying cuticle.
Speciation via floral heterochrony and presumed mycorrhizal host switching of endemic butterfly orchids on the Azorean archipelago.
TLDR
Although morphological evidence suggests two invasions of the islands from NW Africa and/or SW Europe, ITS data imply only one, limited genotypic divergence among the three species compared with greater phenotypesic divergence suggests comparatively recent speciation.
Phylogenetics of tribe Orchideae (Orchidaceae: Orchidoideae) based on combined DNA matrices: inferences regarding timing of diversification and evolution of pollination syndromes.
TLDR
The results indicate that ancestral Orchidinae were hymenopteran-pollinated, food-deceptive plants and that these traits have been dominant throughout the evolutionary history of the subtribe in the Mediterranean.
An intriguing morphological variability of Platanthera s.l.
TLDR
The morphology of 38 species of the genus Platanthera s.l. was investigated by means of light and electron microscopy, finding evidence for morphological plasticity (in particular, in gynostemium structure) and rapid morphological evolution of this group.
Contrast in levels of morphological versus molecular divergence between closely related Eurasian species of Platanthera (Orchidaceae) suggests recent evolution with a strong allometric component
TLDR
The failure to detect species-specific genetic differences between the two allogamous putative species indicates (but cannot conclusively demonstrate) that extensive gene-flow occurs between them, suggesting that previous assertions of pollinator specificity have been greatly exaggerated.

Molecular phylogenetics and morphological reappraisal of the Platanthera clade (Orchidaceae: Orchidinae) prompts expansion of the generic limits of Galearis and Platanthera.

Resolution of major groups should facilitate future species-level research on the Platanthera clade by combining implicit assessment of morphological divergence with explicit assessment of molecular divergence.
Molecular phylogenetics and evolution of Orchidinae and selected Habenariinae (Orchidaceae)
Internal transcribed spacer (ITS nuclear rDNA) data have been obtained from 190 terrestrial orchid species, encompassing all genera and the great majority of the widely recognized species of
Phylogenetic context, generic affinities and evolutionary origin of the enigmatic Balkan orchid Gymnadenia frivaldii Hampe ex Griseb
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis using the ITS region of rDNA reveals a large disparity between the two genera and demonstrates that frivaldii is embedded well within Gymnadenia s.s. Nigritella, suggesting one of three cases of independent paedomorphic floral reduction inferred in the genus.
Floral ontogenetic evidence of repeated speciation via paedomorphosis in subtribe Orchidinae (Orchidaceae)
TLDR
Each of the two case studies was consistent with, but not proof of, saltational macroevolution operating via functional changes in one or more key developmental genes, although both were subject to heterochronic shifts.
Taxonomic complexity , conservation and recurrent origins of self-pollination in Epipactis ( Orchidaceae )
TLDR
Evidence is provided that recurrent breeding system transitions between cross-pollination and self- pollination are an important mechanism for diversification in the genus, and there are numerous genetically different taxa that are homozygous and uniform for different subsets of allelic diversity found in allogamous species.
Variation in sexual reproduction in orchids and its evolutionary consequences: a spasmodic journey to diversification
TLDR
It is reaffirmed that orchids are primarily pollination limited, the severity of which is affected by resource constraints and population structure, reproductive success and gene flow among populations suggest that in many situations genetic drift may be as important as selection in fostering genetic and morphological variation in this family.
Low levels of genetic variation within populations of the four rare orchids Gymnadenia cucullata, Gymnadenia camtschatica, Amitostigma gracile, and Pogonia minor in South Korea: indication of genetic drift and implications for conservation

TLDR
The results suggest that evolutionary histories of G. cucullata, A. gracile, and P. minor are different from G. camtschatica on Ulleung Island, and conservation strategies for the four species should be differently developed in order to preserve genetic diversity in South Korea.
Phylogeny and classification of the orchid family
TLDR
The phylogeny of orchids with two or three fertile anthers and lady's tresses and relatives, the subfamily Spiranthoideae, and the cormous or cymbidioid phylad are described.
Orchid diversity: an evolutionary consequence of deception?
Fruit set, nectar reward, and rarity in the Orchidaceae.
TLDR
It is suggested that the evolution of nectar production within the Orchidaceae has been the most frequent means of escaping the reproductive limitations of low pollinator visitation frequencies.
