Thank you for the link Maggi. An interesting paper and also a passionate one, it is not often you find phrases such as: "Ironically, the net result of…..A further unwelcome development was…...It is crucial to appreciate……who perversely chose to reject all of the…….stands in stark contrast to the nightmare of scientific trivial complexity….." in the scientific literature. Orchid nomenclature and taxonomy is never boring.

And looking forward to see the new Serapias species that (according to the paper) are now crossing the channel from France :-)
