Anoectochilus

Anoectochilus Blume, Bijdr. Fl. Ned. Ind.: 411 (1825).

This is a group of terrestrial orchids with fascinating flowers and ornamented leaves with silver and golden colour markings. Hence they are often refered to as Jewel Orchids. The genus is represented by nearly 42 species but this genus is cryptic and needs a better understanding of species.
