A new species of Ornithocephalus (Orchidaceae) from Colombia with notes on national genus representatives
Dariusz Lucjan Szlachetko , Marta Kolanowska
AbstractA new species of the orchid genus Ornithocephalus, O. leslie-garayi, is described and illustrated based on Colombian material. The novelty resembles O. kruegeri and O. caveroi. It differs from the former by the lip being strongly constricted between hypo- and epichile, the hypochile being ornamented with glandular, fleshy hairs exclusively in the basal part, the presence of the callus in shape of inverted ‘U’ in the lip hypochile and the suborbicular-transversely elliptic lip epichile, which is not apiculate. The new entity can be separated from its Peruvian congener O. caveroi by having about twice smaller flowers, different lip callus, epichile covered by fleshy glandular hairs (vs hirsute) and less bristle sepals and floral bracts. A key to identify Colombian Ornithocephalus representatives is provided.
