Cyrtopodium, often abbreviated Cyrt in horticulture, is a genus of more than 40 species of epiphytic and terrestrial orchids found from Florida and Mexico through Argentina.[1] They appear to form a distinct lineage in the tribe Cymbidieae together with their relatives Galeandra and Grobya; this group forms the Cyrtopodium alliance, either placed in the subtribe Catasetinae or separated as subtribe Cyrtopodiinae.

The type species is C. andersonii, originally described in 1812 by A.B. Lambert as Cymbidium andersonii, and in 1813 used by Robert Brown to erect his new genus Cyrtopodium.[2]
