  • Title
    Orchids of Bhutan: The Genus Vanda
    Type
    Report
    Description
    The genus Vanda Jones ex R.Br., in Bhutan is currently represented by a handful of what must be considered as “disputed” species where the status of all taxa have been questioned in both past and present by various authors for various reasons. The generic name Vanda was proposed in 1795 by William Jones in Asiatic Researches but it was not linked to a specific epithet. Robert Brown (1820) formally established the genus in the Botanical Register when he described Vanda roxburghii, the plant from East Bengal that Jones originally had in mind (Pearce and Cribb 2002).
