leones Pleurothallidinarum (Illustrations of the Pleurothallidinae) began with the genus Pleurothallis in SELBYANA 1. Two other genera, one of them monotypic, are begun in this issue. Eventually several authors will contribute other genera. There are over 2000 species in about 20 genera in the subfamily. Some genera are very small, others are very large. Over 1500 specific epithets have been attributed to Pleurothallis and there may be more than 1000 valid species. The primary purpose of leones Pleurothallidinarum is to provide a ready identification of all the pleurothallids.
