Epidendrum subg. Amphiglottium is a subgenus of reed-stemmed Epidendrums, distinguished by an apical inflorescence with the peduncle covered from its base with close imbricating sheaths and by a lip that is adnate to the column to its apex.

Reichenbach published three sections in this subgenus:

  • E. sect. Polycladia with truly paniculate inflorescences
  • E. sect. Holochila with racemose inflorescences and an undivided lip
  • E. sect. Schistochila with racemose inflorescences and a lobate lip
