Full-text available
The Andean mountains of South America are the most species-rich biodiversity hotspot worldwide with c. 15% of the world’s plant species, in only 1% of the world’s land surface. Orchids are a key element of the Andean flora, and one of the most prominent components of the Neotropical epiphyte diversity, yet very little is known about their origin an...
Article
Panama is still far from completing its orchid flora inventories, where large genera such as Lepanthes (Pleurothallidinae) reveal novelties regularly. Here, we describe and illustrate two new species of Lepanthes. Lepanthes aures-ursinae is similar to L. micellilabia but differs by the orbicular-ovate, obtuse, convex leaves, larger sepals 2.7–3.0 ×...

A new species of Brachionidium from Costa Rica is described and illustrated. Brachionidium cornu-nigricum, from the Volcán Cacho Negro, a remote, previously unexplored location in Costa Rica, is most similar to B. filamentosum. It differs in the white sepals, short-acuminate sepals and petals up to 1 cm long, the triangular, unlobed lip, the oblong...
Article
In Panama, the Orchidaceae comprise 187 genera, of which one of the most conspicuous is Sobralia. The flowers of Sobralia are mostly ephemeral but colorful, often fragrant, and of variable sizes. Despite being a prominent group, its taxonomy is still underdeveloped in most neotropical countries. To continue with taxonomic studies in the Orchidaceae...
