Adamantinia is a monotypic genus of orchids (family Orchidaceae), described in 2004[1] by Cássio van den Berg and Cezar Neubert Gonçalves. The name is a reference to Chapada DiamantinaBrazil, where this species comes from.
The single species, Adamantinia miltonioides, is native to the Serra do Sincorá range (BrazilBahiaSouth America). It grows as anepiphyte at sunny positions, at about 900m altitude. Plants bear more or less clustered unifoliate pseudobulbs (rarely bifoliate), coriaceousdark-olive leaves, and possess long inflorescences with successive flowering. Flowers are showy, pink, with similar petals and sepals and a showy dark pink lip, with very small side lobes. Column is short, with a broad stigma. DNA data from trnL-F plastid sequences indicate relationships to Leptotes and Isabelia.
