Within short time again a new Paphiopedilum
species belonging to the section Barbata
is descriped. This time it
is in an e-Publication of Internet Orchid Species Photo Encyclopedia Nomenclature Notes
by William Cavestro
. They named it Paphiopedilum agusii
Paph. agusii Cavestro & Bougourd
In Richardiana Guido J. Braem

Are you looking for the old PhragWeb web site? Use the link in the top right corner of
the screen to go there.
Recently three new species of Paphiopedilum have been described. (See news items at the right side of the screen.)
Their names have been added to the web site. Also added are the latest published hybrid registrations. All registrations up to and including december 2016
are now included in the web site, except for Paphiopedilum. Adding the numerous Paphiopedilum
hybrids is still a work in progress. The addition of other new data to the web site continues.
On the technical side of the web site there are some changes too. Not directly visible for the visitors of the web site are changes to the programming that
forms the engine of the web site. However there is also a visible change. I changed the way the lists are presented so that they are a bit easier on the eyes.
Although some new data has been added this update is mainly an update of the scripting behind the web site.
Main change for this update is that the latest hybrid registrations are added. Now all registrations up to and including september
2016 are included in the web site, except for those of the genus Paphiopedilum.
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.
Incorporated the name change Phragmipedium manzurii into Phragmipedium schlimii f.
manzurii into the web site.
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.
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.
I made some minor corrections, and added some new names.
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.
