Brachycladium (bra-kee-KLAH-dee-um) This taxon was created with 35 species that used to be a subgenus of Lepanthes. They were elevated to this level because of the long-repent, branching habit with petals often longer than broad and a variable lip without an appendix (except for a midlobe in Brachycladium stalactites).
