SummaryA new one-flowered species of Nervilia is described and illustrated from plants collected in Nakhon Ratchasima Province, eastern Thailand. The glabrous, angular leaf of Nervilia khaoyaica Suddee, Watthana & S. W. Gale affiliates it to the taxonomically difficult and widespread Nervilia adolphi – punctata species alliance of Section Linervia, but it is otherwise readily distinguished by its broad, oblong-obovate lip with a saccate base and obscure, rounded side lobes below the middle, and…

Studies in Asian Nervilia (Orchidaceae) VII: Nervilia kasiensis, a new Lao endemic
A new species belonging to the terrestrial orchid genus Nervilia is described from Kasi District, Vientiane Province, northern Laos, which is morphologically most closely allied to N. muratana of southern China and northern Vietnam.
Studies in Asian Nervilia (Nervilieae, Epidendroideae, Orchidaceae) VI: N. mekongensis , a new species from Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam
A new species of the terrestrial orchid genus Nervilia is described and illustrated from material collected at several localities in the Greater Mekong region of Southeast Asia, distinguished by its stout inflorescence and lip which has acute, forward-projecting side-lobes and a short, ovate mid-lobe.
Studies in Asian Nervilia (Nervilieae, Epidendroideae, Orchidaceae) IV: N. umphangensis , a new species from the Thai–Myanmar border
The Old World terrestrial orchid genus Nervilia Commerson ex Gaudichaud-Beaupre in Freycinet (1829: 421, t. 35) remains poorly known, especially in Asia. It is diagnosed by its hysteranthous habit,
Integrative analyses of Nervilia (Orchidaceae) section Linervia reveal further undescribed cryptic diversity in Thailand
An integrative approach to species delimitation validates ostensibly minor morphological differences as a basis for differentiating species within the Nervilia adolphi/punctata species alliance, paving the way for a global analysis of species boundaries throughout the genus as a whole.
Studies in Asian Nervilia (Orchidaceae) V: Nervilia futago, a Cryptic New Species from Southwest Japan Confirmed by Morphological, Cytological, and Molecular Analyses
Abstract Widespread and poorly studied species complexes confound phylogenetic understanding of the Old World terrestrial orchid genus Nervilia. Recent taxonomic studies have suggested greater

Two new species and four newly recorded taxa are described and illustrated in Taiwan for the orchid flora in Taiwan.
Newly Discovered Native Orchids of Taiwan (VIII)
Two newly discovered native orchids, Corybas shanlinshiensis and Nervilia crociformis, are presented and description and figures of Dendrobium luzonense are provided.
DNA data and archidaceae systematics: A new phylogenetic classification
A new phylogenetic classification of Orchidaceae is proposed that accords with these newly discovered relationships and should help to focus other areas of orchid research and stimulate the creation of new hypotheses that will direct orchid researchers to new questions.

Investigation of the pollination biology of the critically endangered Nervilia nipponica revealed that, in open-pollinated plants, pollen grains germinate within the anther on the first day of anthesis, and that fertilisation occurs within the following 96 hours, suggesting efficient, non-mechanical autopollination.
Nervilia gracilis-A New Orchid Species from Northern Vietnam
Familiarity, ease of access, trust, and awareness of benefits and risks to minimize uncertainty are all important.
Inter-specific relationships and hierarchical spatial genetic structuring in Nervilia nipponica, an endangered orchid in Japan
Genetic structure in the endangered terrestrial orchid Nervilia nipponica was investigated using amplified fragment length polymorphisms following extensive sampling throughout the species’ range in Japan and intensive sampling at a single population, finding limited diversity, but significant structuring was detected between populations.
