From the preface: The present work brings together for the first timeinformation concerning all the known orchids of Guatemala (and BritishHonduras), a total of 527 species and 25 varieties in 89 genera. Thismore than doubles the 238 species given by Hemsley, in 1886-88, asoccurring in Guatemala. All of the genera are illustrated, as well asmore than one hundred additional species. In view of the extreme richness of the flora of Guatemala, further botanical collecting willunquestionably result in the finding of additional genera and speciesnow not known to occur there.
