    Hi all,

    For those interested.
    In an interesting article (in French) Aurélien Sambin and Guy Chiron describe a new species of Selenipedium that was discovered in French Guiana. They call it Selenipedium aucourdianum after Marie Aucourd whom discovered the species.

    In the same article they have added some taxonomic notes concerning Selenipedium palmifolium and Apedium chironianum.

    The article can be found at: http://richardiana.jardinbotaniquedeguyane.com/v4_39/

    All the best,

    Rob Zuiderwijk
