19 March 2020

Abstract

The tribe Malaxideae (Orchidaceae, subfamily Epidendroideae) (sensu Pridgeon et al. 2005: 453) in Madagascar and adjacent archipelagos is revised. In this region it comprises the four genera: Liparis, Malaxis, Oberonia and Stichorkis. All of the species are described and their typification, history, identification, distribution and habitat are discussed. Conservation assessments and distribution maps are included. A checklist of the genera and species and a key to their identification are provided. Six new species: Liparis bemarahensis, L. bosseri, L. chantaliae, L. laurentii, L. magnifica and L. superclareae are described.
