Being the second of six planned instalments of the Flora of Thailand orchid volume, this book includes the first part of the Epidendroideae, viz. tribes Neottieae, Tropidieae, Nervilieae, Gastrodieae, Thaieae, Calypsoeae, Arethuseae, Collabieae and Cymbidieae. Identification keys, synonymies and morphological descriptions are provided for 51 genera with a total of 221 species. Each species account also outlines the total distribution, the occurrence and ecology in Thailand, and gives the vernacular name (if any). Nearly all species are illustrated by a line drawing and/or colour photo, and in a number of cases, special "Notes" sections provide information on taxonomic problems, identification or pollination biology etc.
