Default Dendrochilum Doesn't Exist

I was watching William Green's most recent video and he had some news that took me by surprise. Did y'all know that Dendrochilum was lumped into Coelogyne in 2021? It's even accepted by Kew!

I'm in favor of reducing all genera back into Orchis.

Wow! Is this because of DNA testing?

I am still having trouble knowing what was put into the Cattleya group and what is still called something else. I know some of them but the rest...I will have to go by the tag and wait for someone to correct me.

I think taxonomists are insane.

Plants with different flower and/or flowering structures should be considered to be different genera.

Coelogyne and dendrochilum should remain separate, and cirrhopetalum should be split back out of bulbophyllum, as a start.

That's it, I'm just naming my orchids myself now. The Dendrochillum glumaceum I have incoming from Andy's will be known as Bruce.

For your reading pleasure, see attached.

FYI - Morphology and genetic analysis both played major roles in the current taxonomy.

*Edit - Err, never mind. I can't seem to attach the PDF since its too large*

I concur, I spent YEARS learning a lot of latin, then they tell me it's all different. Umm no, I shall continue to say Aster and not Symphyotrichum.

It isn't really gone. Somebody put it in a different drawer.
