Cephalantheropsis

Cephalantheropsis is a genus of orchids (family Orchidaceae), comprising 4 accepted species distributed in China, Japan, the Eastern Himalayas and Southeast Asia.[1][2]

Closely related to Calanthe and Phaius, recent phylogenetic analysis [3] indicates that this genus is in the tribe Collabieae (which also includes Spathoglottis and Acanthophippium) rather than in Bletiinae.
