Taxonomy of the subtribe Maxillariinae (Orchidaceae, Vandoideae) revised. Biodiv. Res. Conserv. 25: 13-38.
Abstract: A new classification of the subtribe Maxillariinae (Orchidaceae) is proposed. Thirty-seven genera are revised. The Camaridium group is divided into seven genera, Adamanthus, Camaridium, Pseudomaxillaria, Psittacoglossum and three described here: Chaseopsis, Chelyella and Viracocha. Ornithidium s.l. is divided into seven genera: Heterotaxis, Laricorchis, Neo-urbania, Nitidobulbon, Ornithidium, Vazquezella and Aucellia, the latter two described here. 193 new combinations on the species level are validated and the relationships among the genera are briefly discussed. A key to the determination of all genera representing Maxillariinae s. s. is provided.
Key words: Maxillaria, Camaridium, Ornithidium, new genera, Neotropics, taxonomy
