He published at least 7 genera, 35 subgeneric taxa (subgenera and sections), 461 new species and generic transfers, and 94 infraspecific taxa of orchids (16 sections, 80 species, and 5 infraspecific taxa in Maxillaria alone). A few years before his death, Eric began to work on a monograph of Maxillaria.
