Dodson,Epidendrum dolichorhachis in E. Pollinia, 4, obovoid, laterally compressed; caudicles soft and granulose, twice as long as the pollinia. Leaves of the main stem not seen; persistent at time of flowering, distributed towards the apex of the stems, sub-coriaceous, dark green above, underside pale green, concolor, sub-spreading, slightly arched; sheaths 3- 16 x cm, tubular, striated; blade 3.
Access to the information and data produced is very restrictive, creating a need for a centralized source of standard information to aid enthusiasts, students, researchers and policymakers countrywide. Inflorescence 9- 39 cm long, apical, racemose, producing new racemes with time and thus pluri-racemose, each raceme compact, densely many-flowered; peduncle cm long, elongate, terete, reddish green, covered with numerous bracts cm long, tubular, acute, not imbricated, light brown, becoming fibrous with time.
