This CD-ROM, the final volume in the series, treats the mega-genus Bulbophyllum. Two genera that clearly belong to Bulbophyllum, namely Pedilochilus and Saccoglossum, are provisionally maintained here pending the formal transfer of the species concerned. Some 635 species are treated in detail. For each species a full description is given, with data on distribution (including maps), synonymy, cultivation, ecology, typification, classification, etc. In excess of 2500 color photographs and drawings add to the value of this CD-ROM. A special feature, as compared to prior volumes, is the about 1000 stereo and stereo-macro images made by Peter Jongejan. These offer amazing 3D views of some of the most intricate flowers in the Plant Kingdom. Several leading botanical institutes, such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the Royal Botanic Garden, Edinburgh, the Herbarium Bogoriense, Bogor, and the National Capital Botanic Garden, Port Moresby, as well as many well-known photographers have contributed to make this CD-ROM a must for everyone interested in the orchids of New Guinea and Southeast Asia.
