Abstract: The Dendrobium genus comprises over 1,000
species of epiphytic orchids distributed over a
vast triangular area connecting Indi a, New Zealand,
and Japan, and including most of the
tropical and subtropical land areas between 60
and 180 east longitude. This large genus has
been subdivided into numerous sections on the
basis of morphological characteristics (Holttum,
1957). Members of the Ceratobium, Phalaenanthe,
and Latourea sections are distributed in
New Guinea and surrounding areas. Both Ceratobium
and Latourea are represented by at least
30 species each, while Phalaenanthe includes a
relatively few species. Several species in these
sections have been widely cultivated and extensively
hybridized to produce the improved and
popular horticultural varieties of today.
