Caption: Entitled: Vanilla phalaenopsis taken from Les orchidees by Paul Emile de Puydt, published 1880. Paul Emile de Puydt (March 6, 1810 - May 20, 1891) was a Belgian writer whose contributions included work in botany and economics. As a botanist, he notably wrote on orchids. The standard botanical author abbreviation De Puydt is applied to species he described. Orchidaceae is a diverse and widespread family of flowering plants with blooms that are often Colourful and often fragrant, commonly known as the orchid family. All orchids are perennial herbs that lack any permanent woody structure. The family also includes Vanilla (the genus of the vanilla plant), Orchis (type genus), and many commonly cultivated plants such as Phalaenopsis and Cattleya. Orchids are easily distinguished from other plants, as they share some very evident shared derived characteristics. Among these are: bilateral symmetry of the flower (zygomorphism), many resupinate
