Reichantha (rye-KAN-thah) consists mostly of Central American species and is distinguished by a caespitose habit, a single flower or a successively flowered raceme (except one with two simultaneous flowers), borne by a peduncle round in cross-section. The sepals are long-tailed. The petals are callous on the lower half without a protruding process. The lip is oblong with a pair of often distinct longitudinal calli on or above the middle. Most of these species came from Masdevallia section Reichenbachianae. A few came from other subgenera and sections.
