Vernacular names

Aenhenrya is a monotypic genus of terrestrial orchids that spread by means of underground rhizomes. Only one species is known, Aenhenrya rotundifolia, a very rare plant and endemic to southern India (within Kerala and Tamil Nadu).[1][3]

The genus name of Aenhenrya is in honour of Ambrose Nathaniel Henry (b. 1936), Indian botanist with a focus on the flora of Southern India.[4] The Latin specific epithet of rotundifolia is Latin for round-leaved.[5] It was first described and published in J. Bombay Nat. Hist. Soc. Vol.90 on page 270 (1993, published in 1994).[6] Then the species was first published in Novon Vol.7 on page 81 in 1997.[2]

The genus is recognized by the United States Department of Agriculture and the Agricultural Research Service, but they do not list any known species.[7]
