The Genus Laelia in Brazil

April 5, 2022 @ 6:30 pm 9:00 pm

Francisco Miranda was born in Rio de Janeiro on February 6, 1956. He received his degree in Biology and began his taxonomic studies in the orchid family in 1981. During the next 4 years, he lived most of the time in Manaus where he studied Amazon orchids and began his Master’s degree on “section Cattleyodes of the genus Laelia”. Since then, his main interest has been in the Brazilian laelias and cattleyas. He is the author of two books and several papers in Brazilian, German, and U.S. publications. Francisco lives in Haines City, Florida, where he operates Miranda Orchids, an orchid nursery specializing in Brazilian species and the Cattleya alliance. He also guides trips to Brazil and frequently visits Brazilian habitats to find new and/or interesting orchid species.
