    The Australian and New Zealand subtribe Aeridinae genera are covered with a text description for each genus with all publishing details provided accompanied by at least one representative species with a text description and colour photographs. At the back of the book 2 new vandaceous genera are proposed viz. Arachnopapua and Newzealochilus and one new species of Taeniophyllum. Observations are made in the genera Biermannia, Chroniochilus and Pennilabium alliances with Chroniochilus and Pennilabium merged into Biermannia."--publisher description.
