This is true, however the taxonomy is changing alot regarding orchids and it's impossible to keep renaming them. At the time i wrote the original entries, the taxonomy status was still unclear. You will find a few of the orchids have since been re-named.
Once everything is clear i will get the curators to put the new names in place, but there are still a few entries to be published yet.
Thanks for noticing though. smiley - smiley
