The Phalaenopsis Alliance at one time consisted of a number of genera including Doritis, Kingidium, Kingiella, and several other genera. As the understanding of genetic relationships between plants has evolved, the taxonomy of these former genera has been reduced to synonymy with Phalaenopsis although it is common to find plants in the horticultural trade labeled as Doritis and Doritaenopsis and likely will be for some time to come.
