Coryanthes is one of the genera of Stanhopeinae treated in Genera Orchidacearum, volume 5. Charles Darwin, whose 200th birthday is celebrated next month, discussed its pollination in his "On the Various Contrivances by which British and Foreign Orchids are Fertilised by Insects" (1862). Coryanthes macrantha (Hook.) Hook. was grown and photographed here by Alec Pridgeon.
