Florida Museum of Natural History
Assembling the Tree of Life: Orchidaceae ONCIDIINAE (ORCHIDACEAE) University of Florida Herbarium Home


This study expands our previous work (especially subtribes Maxillariinae, Oncidiinae, Zygopetalinae, and Stanhopeinae) to the entire family.


This page is under construction and will eventually contain photos of a large number of species of Oncidiinae, but until then check out the Links to find other sites with photos and information on Oncidiinae. In addition, we should soon have up several hundred photos of species of Oncidiinae.
