Vernacular names

Angraecinae is a subtribe in the family Orchidaceae. The subtribe consists of approximately 18 genera and about 360 species. The type genus is Angraecum. Most of the genera are endemic to Africa, Madagascar and other Indian Ocean Islands, a few genera can also be found in the Americas.

Taxonomy

Recent scholarship has led to proposed reorganization of this subtribe.[citation needed] The proposed change would have Campylocentrum and all leafless Neotropical genera transferred to a new subtribe under tribe Vandeae to be called Campylocentrinae. That would leave only the Palaeotropical genera in the Angraecum alliance within this subtribe. There is, however, not sufficient scientific agreement to justify moving the "Campylocentrinae" at this time.
