The Orchid genera table, combined with the Illustrated Orchid Compendium© , is an continual project of Camp Lot A Noise Tropicals (CLAN). The Orchid Genera table, which follows on five pages, was extracted from several sources. The primary source was The Handbook on Orchid Nomenclature and Registration (Handbook), fourth edition 1993. The 5 year addendum to Sander's List of Orchid Hybrids, 1990-1995, was also used. This addendum lists all Orchid Hybrids registered through December 31, 1995. In addition, new Orchid hybrids as reported in Orchids, the AOS publication, is used to update the table. The list is updated through October, 1998. Newly described genera are added when found in the literature. There is no guarantee this table is all inclusive. It is placed here purely for your enjoyment. The Genera Table will be re linked with our Illustrated Orchid Compendium (IOC)©, soon. The IOC is presently undergoing updating .
