INTRODUCTION TO MAXILLARIINAE

This page is under construction and will eventually contain photos of a large number of species of Maxillaria, but until then check out the Links to find other sites with photos and information on Maxillaria. In addition, we should soon have up a Lucid key to the species of Maxillaria of Costa Rica, as well as several hundred photos of species of Maxillaria.
