- Zeuxine, new species, Cambodia, Thailand
- Notes are supplied on various species of the Jewel Orchid genus Zeuxine, particularly those taxa found in western Malesia, nearby Thailand, and Cambodia. Narrower circumscriptions are proposed for Z. gracilis and Z. parvifolia, whereas Z. flava is expanded into a broader concept. Zeuxine leucochila is reinstated, and the identities of Z. exilis and Z. rupestris are clarified. Zeuxine leucochila var. cambodiana is raised to species status as Z. cambodiana, and three new species are proposed, namely, Z. eryliae, Z. pseudogracilis, and Z. subquadrata.
