Hi Steve,

Maxillaria is one of the genera that has undergone a revision based upon DNA and morphological studies. The World Checklist now recognises the genus Maxillariella M.A.Blanco & Carnevali.

Maxillaria variablilis is now listed as Maxillariella variablilis.

Further details can be found in the references listed below.

Cheers.

Gary
