Welcome (back).

Are you looking for the old PhragWeb web site? Use the link in the top right corner of the screen to go there.


23-Oct-2016
Many additions and updates are made but this renewed, updated web site is still a work in progress. Among other things the newly described Phragmipedium anchicayense from Colombia is added, as well as the in february of this year described new taxa in the genus Selenipedium; chica subsp. buenaventurae, garayanum and olgae.


03-Oct-2016
Incorporated the name change Phragmipedium manzurii into Phragmipedium schlimii f. manzurii into the web site.


02-Oct-2016
Besides a couple of things I still have to check all Phragmipedium hybrids up to and including June 2016 are now updated and migrated into the new web site. The updating process was a major puzzle not only because of the name changes in the subgenus Phragmipedium, but also because of the changes introduced by the registrar concerning the parentage of Phrag. Grande which as a consequence reduced Phrag. Wössner Supergrande to a synonym, and the introduction of Phrag. Leslie Garay. The parents of almost all hybrids involved changed.


02-May-2016
A lot of names were added, mainly Phragmipedium hybrids, and I added some automation to the web site concerning the varieties and forms of the natural taxa.


20-Apr-2016
I made some minor corrections, and added some new names.


15-Apr-2016
After a long period of silence I'm happy to announce the relaunch of my web site. As you can see the site has had a complete overhaul. Besides the obvious visible changes the "machinery" behind the web site has changed significantly as well, opening the door for new features in the future. And as you have probably noticed not only the web site but also the name has changed. Ever since its appearance on the internet in 1998 the web site has carried the name PhragWeb. But over the years the information presented expanded from just the genus Phragmipedium to include the other Central and South American genera Mexipedium and Selenipedium as well. This made that the name PhragWeb not quite covered the load anymore and I decided that with the relaunch of the web site I change the name to Slipperiana. The name PhragWeb (including the internet domain name phragweb.info) will stay linked to the web site. And you can still reach the old PhragWeb web site by clicking on the link in the top right corner of the page.

At the moment the new Slipperiana web site is still very much in its infancy. A basic skeletal structure has been layed down and I'm now busy entering a framework of names of both natural taxa and artificial hybrids to which further data will be added later.

Any way, I hope you like the changes. Enjoy, and thank you for visiting.
