Hi Everyone,

I'm working on gathering and posting all the original descriptions of Paph & Phrag species (and synonyms). So far, I've gotten almost all from the Victorian Era and the freely available modern ones. They've been posted here:
Paphs:
http://slipperorchids.info/paphdescriptions/index.html
Phrags:
http://slipperorchids.info/phragdescriptions/index.html

I can get a good portion of the modern stuff from my own collection and libraries near me (DC is great for libraries), but a number of foreign orchid journals aren't available in my area. If anyone has .pdfs or would be willing to scan articles for me, I'd be grateful. My e-mail is [email protected].

Once I have gathered the modern articles I'll be contacting the authors for permission to post.

Stephen, thank you very much for your wonderful work! I occasionally need to track down the original descriptions for unidentified orchid species, and it could be tedious. So this is a great resource!

I recently noticed that Tropicos (and some other similar database) has links to botanicus.org and http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org, where older literature digitized. It can be handy to locate older literature without interlibrary loan.

BHL is where I got most of the old stuff, actually. It is an amazing website that made everything so much easier than it would have been 10 years ago. Most of the rest of the old stuff is from Google Books. Maybe one or two of the older descriptions are from things I myself have scanned. Both BHL and Google Books allow people to use their scans for non-commercial purposes.

In the ideal world that exists only within my brain, every single out-of-copyright book has been scanned and uploaded somewhere for free access. Google Books is a great start on this.

I have the Australia magazines and journals from their first editions to current editions and should have Guido's work in the file section of the Slipper Orchids Australia Group. Anitum and the recent colour form I have also. Alberto Grossi should be able to help with the italian journals. I'm keen to get the Paph. x trantuanii - Gogniat & Loubr. in Swiss Orchid Society Bulletin, 1: 2 (2008) if you get hold of it. I might try Guido for that as I think he may have it. I'll dig some stuff out.

Stephen, do you know about the OGD (Orchid Guide Digest). People on that list are very helpful for the kind of information you are seeking.

Thanks, everyone!

The site was down for a few days as something went wrong with the permissions on the host server. They reset them and it should be back up now.
