New! I have added two pages to the menu above - Paph Species Descriptions and Phrag Species Descriptions.  I'm working on gathering and posting all the original descriptions of Paph & Phrag species (and synonyms).  So far, I've gotten almost all from the Victorian Era and the freely available modern ones.  I am in the process of gathering scans of the remaining modern ones from nearby libraries but many European/World orchid journals aren't available in my area.  I have posted a list of the articles I need below.  If anyone has .pdf's they can send me or has the magazines and would be willing to scan the articles for me I would be grateful.  Please send them to silence882@gmail.com.  Once I have gathered most of the descriptions I'll be contacting the authors and publishers for permission to post.  The articles I need are:

Also, I am always in search of new pictures (even of those blooms which I have multiples of), so if anyone would allow me to use their photos, please send me an e-mail.
