So, evidently there are not any pictures of this orchid anywhere I have been able to find on the web. I recently picked up a copy of "The Orchids: Natural History and Classification" by R. Dressler. REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLY neat book, and with a nice breakdown of the tribes and subtribes. Thick if you are not into scientific geek-speak (Julie, I can only imagine the "proper" British-accented botanical latin pronunciationsof some of these things). Well, the drawings of leaf shape of pachyplectron caught my eye, and I was interested in seeing a photo, can't find one. Any help?
Pachyplectron falls under the tribe Cranichis (Crnchs.)
Here's a Latin description I found:
"Within Cranichideae, Pachyplectroninae and Goodyerinae form a well-supported monophyletic group."
The AOS lists Cranichis as a genus and not a tribe, so they have no record of Pachyplectron. I think you're falling into a nomenclature crack, where to some it's called one thing, and to others it's called something else.
But check this out:
It's a breakdown of tribe Cranichis. It lists a genus Pachyplectron. The kicker is, it appears to be poorly distinguished. It lists Pachyplectron as, "a catch-all record for unidentified or unnamed plants of Pachyplectron." That's certainly circular logic!
That makes me wonder if the species are known under a different genus.
I suggest you e-mail Lisa, Queen of Orchidaceae nomenclature (not to be confused with Sheena, Queen of the Jungle!)
I found Pachyplectron arifolium listed in CITES paper .
The listing was under >50 <1000
It seems to com from the pacific,from the links that I gave earlier New Caledonia
