Caption: Entitled: Dendrobium macrophyllum 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. Dendrobium macrophyllum, commonly known as the Large leaved Dendrobium or Pastor's Orchid, is a species of orchid. It is native to Indonesia, Philippines, New Guinea, and some islands of the western Pacific. 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. Orchids are easily distinguished from other plants, as they share some very evident shared derived characteristics. Among these are: bilateral symmetry.
