    Our Orchid Genera page now has 200 Genera listed on our forum. Marni contributed to the 200th Genera, Scelochilus.

    Just to let you know how our system works, if you haven't read up on it, any time you use the genus name in your thread title, it is automatically added to the appropriate page.

    For example, if you post about your Maxillaria tenuifolia it will automatically be added to that page. You will also notice that it is automatically linked to so you can easily click within a post and browse more within that specific genus.

    Thanks to everyone that has contributed. We have quite the community here and I look forward to seeing it grow :)

    It is included in Lepanthes(old name). I am pretty sure few of us have posted few species from that group

    Thanks, Sebastian.

    Sebastian has posted threads with it. The cloud accounts for quantity but the species list should cover everything. I don't think the species list is generated automatically. As I understand it, Brent does and he may have missed that one.

    The species list is a good reason to not use abbreviations in the thread title. If it is abbreviated it won't get included.

    There are probably more than 200 genera here now. Some of them are still missing on the list, Thanks to Marni's post, now my thread and Dale's thread are included in Scelochilus.

    If anyone sees anything missing, please contact Brent.

    Now, what are we going to do with new genus name or old genus name? Probably will list the new and the old as the way people choose to use?

    As far I know, the list is done by hand..., I have found at least half dozen of missing genera since this list was created..., I let Brent know and he added them to the list.

    Ricardo, Horus posted his Thecostele here before you, so you may have to share the credit with your fellow countryman too.:p :D

    It would be very nice, if when you look up a genus, the results show up alphabetically by species and not by most recent post. If I am looking for info on, say, Dendrobium linguella, I have to scroll though many posts to see if it has been discussed, and it may not have been.

    Jerry, you can use the "search" function. It is in the upper right, immediately above your avatar.

    Hi Jerry,

    If you use our search and type this in: "Dendrobium linguella" (make sure to use the " around it) it will search for that exactly on our entire forum.

    Well. Thank you both, KellyW and Brent W. That makes it much easier. Sorry I didn't figure that out.

    None should be lost. I just need to redesign the landing page.

    Yes, you have lost some of them for whatever reasons. Chytroglossa, Centroglossa and Hymenorchis are just few that I know are missing.

    Ceratocentron is another one right off my head..., Someone may tell you what else missing. Definitely, there will be more.
