Pleurothallis (plur-oh-THAL-liss) was the largest genus in the subtribe with perhaps 2,000 species.  It was divided further into 27 subgenera and 25 sections as the members are so varied in appearance. They can be short or tall, upright or creeping, thin or fleshy leaved, single-flowered or in racemes with thin or fleshy petals that are smooth or fringed or somewhere in between.  Indeed, there is quite a range within the genus.  One commonality is that they all have 2 pollinia.

Many have now been split off into separate genera.
