For other special blocks in the Org file, the LaTeX export back-end
makes a special environment of the same name. The back-end also takes
‘`:options`’, if any, and appends as-is to that environment’s opening
string. For example:

#+BEGIN_abstract We demonstrate how to solve the Syracuse problem. #+END_abstract #+ATTR_LATEX: :options [Proof of important theorem] #+BEGIN_proof ... Therefore, any even number greater than 2 is the sum of two primes. #+END_proof

exports to

\begin{abstract} We demonstrate how to solve the Syracuse problem. \end{abstract} \begin{proof}[Proof of important theorem] ... Therefore, any even number greater than 2 is the sum of two primes. \end{proof}

If you need to insert a specific caption command, use ‘`:caption`’
attribute. It overrides standard ‘`CAPTION`’ value, if any. For
example:

#+ATTR_LATEX: :caption \MyCaption{HeadingA} #+BEGIN_proof ... #+END_proof
