It looks like someone opened a box of new Paphiopedilum taxa recently because new descriptions follow each other fast
at the moment. Last month, March, the descriptions of Paph. bungebelangi, Paph. lunatum
and Paph. agusii. More recently on 31-Mar-2017 Paph. notatisepalum and 07-Apr-2017
Paph. dodyanum. These new taxa are of course added to the web site.
With the upcoming publication of the new book on slipper orchids by Phillip Cribb and Christopher Purver,
I decided to add a table of recent monographs of slipper orchid genera. (See below)
The older update history for this web site has been moved to separate pages
which can be reached by using the link at the bottom left of the pages.
And again some technical updates have been made. The further development and addition of data to Slipperiana continues.
Thank you for visiting.
