This monotypic genus includes the one species, Seidenfadenia mitrata, which was for many years (and still may be) sold in the orchid trade as Aerides mitrata. In 1972 Leslie Garay established this new genus in honor of Gunnar Seidenfaden, noted researcher on the orchids of Thailand. Certain technical differences in the flowers as well as the semiterete foliage distinguish this genus from Aerides. Seidenfadenia mitrata typically flowers in the spring producing inflorescences from the base of the semiterete foliage.
These are extremely large specimen size plants !
