The genus was described in 1871 by J. D. Hooker. So far, a little more than 50 species are known. The growth is upright with more or less sharp warts on the ribs. The flowers are very decorative but so different that an assignment is possible only with a precise knowledge of the species. The plants are easy to keep.
