Utricularia" sect. "Steyermarkia is a section in the genus "Utricularia". The three species in this section are small lithophyte carnivorous plants native to South America. Both "U. aureomaculata" and "U. steyermarkii" were previously included in "U." sect. "Setiscapella" until Peter Taylor split them off from it in 1989 with the creation of section "Steyermarkia". He did this on the basis of the very different seeds and multinerved leaves seen in these two species. "Utricularia
" was described in 2008 and added to this section after these taxonomic shifts. This section is named in honor of Julian Alfred Steyermark.
The flowers form an apical, paniculate raceme with a spathe at the base of the inflorescence . There is a great variety in the flowers of this genus. They may be attached to the stem by a peduncle or may be sessile. They can flower on the raceme at the same time or successively. They can be resupinate or non-resupinate (as in "Prosthechea
"). "Prosthechea" flowers are unique among the Laeliinae in producing fluorescent flavenoid crystals when preserved in ethanol with 5% sodium hydroxide.
Each oblong discoid pseudobulb bears one or two linear nonsucculent leaves. The flowers are unusual in that though the labellum is usually below the column in the orchids, in the members of "Prosthechea" the labellum forms a "hood" over the column. This makes the flower effectively upside down, or non-resupinate. Whereas the species usually has one anther, "Prosthechea
var. triandra" is an endangered variety that has three anthers and is autogamous, allowing its existence in Florida where no appropriate pollinators appear to be present.
Orchids have many associations with symbolic values. For example, the orchid is the City Flower of Shaoxing, China. "Cattleya mossiae" is the national Venezuelan flower, while "Cattleya trianae" is the national flower of Colombia. "Vanda" 'Miss Joaquim' is the national flower of Singapore, "Guarianthe skinneri" is the national flower of Costa Rica and "Rhyncholaelia digbyana" is the national flower of Honduras. "Prosthechea
" is the national flower of Belize, where it is known as the "black orchid". "Lycaste skinneri" has a white variety (alba) which is the national flower of Guatemala, commonly known as "Monja Blanca" (White Nun). Panama's national flower is the "Holy Ghost orchid" ("Peristeria elata"), or 'the flor del Espiritu Santo'.
"Lycaste" flowers, like all orchid blooms, have three petals and three sepals. The petals are typically yellow, white, or orange, and the sepals are yellow, orange, green, or reddish brown. The petals and sepals may be marked sparsely or densely with red, reddish purple, purple, or reddish brown spots. The lip (ventral petal) may be very similar to the other two petals, as in "Lycaste aromatica" or "Lycaste brevispatha", or colored quite distinctively, as in several subspecies and varieties of "Lycaste macrophylla". Most "Lycaste" flowers are medium in size, averaging about 5 to 10 cm, but "Lyc. schilleriana" is 16-18 cm across. Some "Lycaste" blooms have a unique fragrance - the scent of "Lyc. aromatica" has been variously described as cinnamon or clove. The blooms of the species "Lyc.
", "consobrina", and "cruenta" also have a pleasant scent.
The species was originally named "Helvella coccinea" by the Italian naturalist Giovanni Antonio Scopoli in 1772. Other early names include "Peziza coccinea" (Nikolaus Joseph von Jacquin, 1774) and "Peziza dichroa" (Theodor Holmskjold, 1799). Although some authors in older literature have applied the generic name "Plectania" to the taxon following Karl Fuckel's 1870 name change (e.g. Seaver, 1928; Kanouse, 1948; Nannfeldt, 1949; Le Gal, 1953), that name is now used for a fungus with brownish-black fruit bodies. "Sarcoscypha coccinea" was given its current name by Jean Baptiste Émil Lambotte in 1889. Obligate synonyms (different names for the same species based on one type) include "Lachnea coccinea" Gillet (1880), "Macroscyphus coccineus" Gray (1821), and "Peziza dichroa" Holmskjold (1799). Taxonomic synonyms (different names for the same species, based on different types) include "Peziza aurantia" Schumacher (1803), "Peziza aurantiaca" Persoon (1822), "Peziza coccinea" Jacquin (1774), "Helvella coccinea" Schaeffer (1774), "Lachnea coccinea" Phillips (1887), "Geopyxis coccinea" Massee (1895), "Sarcoscypha coccinea" Saccardo ex Durand (1900), "Plectania coccinea" (Fuckel ex Seaver), and "Peziza
" Batsch (1783).
