Brachionidium (brack-ee-oh-NID-ee-um) contains around 65 interrelated species from throughout tropical America. The name is derived from the Greek word for "little arm" referring to the protrusions on the stigma, or the tip of the female reproductive part. The branching rhizomes are sheathed and produce short aerial stems. The single short-lived flowers appear to have two sepals and a pair of similar large petals. They have six or eight pollinia.
