    Similar to Angraecum, Angraecopsis are native to Africa, Madagascar, Réunion, Mauritius, and the Comoros. The Plant List includes 56 scientific plant names of species rank for the genus Angraecopsis. Of these 22 are accepted species names.

    I am looking for members who grow, sell, have sources for, or promote both this genus and hybrids. The photo is my Angraecopsis parviflora. (Not studio quality; fall leaves blurred in the background). I am looking specifically for amaniensis, gracillima, and lisowskii. Angraecopsis parviflora sm.jpg .

    Very rare in cultivation in N. America. When I was in Kenya, I saw lots of angraecopsis gracillima growing everywhere in the Kakamega rainforest. Good luck in your search! There are lots of angraecoid growers here who might have the species you're interested in
