Barbrodria (bar-BROH-dree-ah) is comprised of one species, Barbrodria miersii. This species is unique in the Pleurothallidinae. Although superficially it appears convincingly to belong to Barbosella, the morphology of the lip and column are so foreign to that genus, that isolation in a unispecific genus seems indicated, in spite of DNA studies that place it beside Barbosella. Future work based on morphological and molecular data, however, may change the placement of this peculiar species within the Pleurothallidinae.
