The genus Ancipitia (an-seh-PIH-tee-uh) is a new genus consisting largely of species that used to belong to the genus Pleurothallis, subgenus Ancipitia. The species of this genus are easy to recognize vegetatively by the laterally compressed, two-edged ramicauls - some more sharply compressed more than others, and some compressed only near the leaf. The lips are most often diversely modified into bizarre shapes resembling insects, or the heads of animals with ears or horns.
