Prosthechea Knowles & Westcott. Subfamily: Epidendroideae. Subtribe: Laeliinae.

Key to Prosthechea

A genus of about 120 species, epiphytic herbs, of the Neotropics. Tieira, Salazar, & van den Berg (2024) reassessed the phylogeny of Prosthechea and relatives, and defended a broad circumscription of the genus, including such previous segregates as Hormidium. We follow their circumscription, and use their clade names.
