     Here's a holiday present for folks who have shared my frustration 
at being unable to find an efficient way through Dr. Luer's folio series 
Thesaurus Masdevalliarum/A Treasure of Masdevallia:  a free downloadable 

     This is an index to the first 28 volumes of Dr. Carlyle Luer's 
folio series, with a cross-reference to the current names. It 
incorporates Dr. Luer's corrigenda from the series, as well as 
corrections and changes from Icones Pleurothallidinarum volumes 
19,21,22,23, and 25. The current genera are from Icones 
Pleurothallidinarum volume 28.

   It is in PDF format, so you will need the free Adobe Acrobat 
<http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html> program in order 
to read it.

   You can find this at  the Mountain Orchids Web site, which is created 
and maintained by Darrin Norton, proprietor of Mountain Orchids, grower 
extraordinaire and Web wiz:   www.mountainorchids.com.  Click on "Useful 
Links" on the left side of  the page.  You will find the index at the 
top of  the target page.  Thanks to Darrin for hosting this, and thanks 
to Chad Sarles for careful proofreading.  Thanks most of all to Dr. 
Luer, for producing such a magnificent work--a pleasure to index!
