Epidendrum subg. Amphiglottium (Salisb.) Lindl. 1841 is a subgenus of reed-stemmed Epidendrums, distinguished by an apical inflorescence with the peduncle covered from its base with close imbricating sheaths and by a lip that is adnate to the column to its apex.[1]

Reichenbach published three sections in this subgenus:[2]
