Very closely related to Phalaenopsis, Doritis is a genus of small to medium-sized, predominantly terrestrial plants native to southeast Asia. The showy, medium-sized flowers are strongly allied to Phalaenopsis and freely interbreed creating thousands of registered Doritaenopsis hybrids. These intergeneric hybrids commonly behave more like their Phalaenopsis ancestors and should be treated or grown as such. Christenson, in his Phalaenopsis Monograph sinks Doritis, as section Esmeralda, into synonymy with Phalaenopsis and the Kew World Monocot Checklist has accepted this taxonomic revision. While hybrids continue to be registered as Doritaenopsis, this may change in the near future if the RHS Registrar also accepts the revision. The name Doritis is derived either from the Greek dory, spear – an allusion to the lip shape or from Doritis, a name given to the goddess Aphrodite. While many Phalaenopsis inflorescences tend to gracefully arch, those of Doritis are stiffly erect, an adaptation resulting from their terrestrial habitat. Doritisalso bloom during the summer and are characterized by a dark, cerise color, which is shared with many of its hybrid progeny (the bright red lip of many hybrid Doritaenopsis is believed to be inherited from the Doritis background as well). The most commonly grown species of this is D. pulcherrima.
