Description

Mexipedium is a monotypic genus of the Orchid family Orchidaceae, subfamily Cypripedioideae, consisting of only one species, Mexipedium xerophyticum. It is also the single genus of tribe Mexipedieae and subtribe Mexipediinae. This species was initially described as Phragmipedium xerophyticum by Soto Arenas, Salazar & Hàgsater in 1990, but transferred to its own genus by Albert & Chase in 1992, in part based on results from DNA analysis. Mexipedium xerophyticum is known from a single location in Oaxaca, Mexico. Only seven plants were observed at the time of its discovery. Its name is derived from the country of origin Mexico and the Latin pes ( foot ), referring to the form of the lip. The specific epithet xerophyticum means "preferring dry conditions". A small number of plants were removed for propagation to prevent rapacious growers from plundering their numbers. Plants are now available as propagules.
