Encyclia species of SA does a great job of covering the vast majority of this Genus. Great information on location, culture, identification key, and species description. What more could you want, except for a few more color photos?

Exhaustive account of all the species in this large genera. Superb as every work by this renowned, illustrious late botanist.
