Abstract. A generic transfer of eight species from Oncidium to Odontoglossum is made here, supported by molecular and morphologic evidence. Homotypic synonyms are listed. These transfers make it possible to maintain a monophyletic genus Odontoglossum without creating any new generic names. Quotes from authors that favor a larger and morphologically indefinable Oncidium are included and responded to by the authors of this paper, who are in favor of maintaining a more conservative and… Expand
A small-flowered natural Odontoglossum hybrid (Orchidaceae: Oncidiinae) from Ecuador
A new small-flowered natural Odontoglossum hybrid from northwestern Ecuador is described and illustrated with a line drawing and a photograph. The novelty is compared with its sympatric parentExpand
An Overview of Orchid Protocorm-Like Bodies: Mass Propagation, Biotechnology, Molecular Aspects, and Breeding
TLDR
Recent studies on Phalaenopsis equestris genome sequencing have enabled more detailed molecular studies and the molecular characterization of plantlets obtained from this technique currently allow the technique to be evaluated in a more comprehensive way regarding its real applications and main limitations aiming at mass propagation.

Genetic, Heritability and Genetic Advance of Progenies Derived from Hybridization of Vanda ‘Adrienne’ × Ascocenda ‘Peggy Foo’ with Vanda malinii × Vanda denisoniana Benson & Rchb.f. in vivo
TLDR
The results indicated the importance of these three characters best used as selection criteria for Vanda genotypes, reflecting the presence and expression of additive gene action of these traits. Expand
