    Default Taxonomy Changes


    Does anyone have a link to the major taxonomy changes that have taken place? For instance, I have a Doritis pulcherrima, but I thought I had heard that Doritis and Phaleonopsis were now considered to be the same genus.

    Just wanted to see if any of my plant labels needed cleanup.

    Your are correct that are no plants left in the genus Doritis
    I check these things at the Kew Monocot list
