There are only two (2) species of this genus. Both are found growing wild Mexico. Two species from Epidendrum and Encyclia were separated and placed into their own genus. Both of these plants have gray-green foliage and have enough unique floral characteristics to justify a new genus. Grow mounted on cork bark or tree fern plaques to display the plants at their best.
Both of these species have been used to create hybrids. They are still registered as Epidendrums when hybrids are registered.
