As a comment about Orchid (Robiquetia minimiflora), valleylynn wrote:

From Wikimedia:
A very rare monopodial epiphytic orchid species and it was the only species of the monospecific genus Abdominea, but has now been merged into the genus Robiquetia as a result of the 2017 Catalogue of Life (KEW/WSCP) update. . It is distributed from Thailand to the Malay peninsula, Java, and the Philippines.

The name is derived from the Latin abdomen, meaning belly. It refers to the similarity between the shape of the labellum (lip) and the shape of the abdomen of an insect.

The species produces very small flowers, about 0.45 cm wide, on a racemose, many-flowered inflorescence.

This single-species genus has now been merged into the genus Robiquetia as a result of the 2017 Catalogue of Life (KEW/WCSP) update.

Thanks, Lynn. The latest update to the Catalogue of Life has included quite a number of changes, so I'm now slowly working through the Orchid genera again and updating them as I go. Considering how many there are, it'll take a while...
