Note
The only material of Phymatidium vogelii known to the author is the type specimen, which is very delicate and unfortunately has been very badly pressed. The leaves and flowers are rather flattened which precluded a proper study. However, the floral morphology of this species is that of the P. mellobarretoi alliance, notably the column shape and the two lateral ear-like appendages flanking the tabula infrastigmatica at the base. The clinandrium is dorsal and somewhat recurved and the rostellum is conspicuous and entire. The anther is operculate and relatively large. Phymatidium vogelii is closely related to P. mellobarretoi and P. limae from which it can be distinguished by the floral morphology, especially the size and the shape of the lip. Named after Dr Stefan Vogel, who collected the type specimen.
