Myoxanthus oliviae sp. nov. (Pleurothallidinae, Orchidaceae) from Peru

Marta Kolanowska , Dariusz Lucjan Szlachetko


A new species of the orchid genus Myoxanthus, M. oliviae, is described based on Peruvian material. The novelty resembles M. serripetalus from which it differs by the 7–8-veined lateral sepals (versus 6- or 9-veined), the petals contracted below the apex and expanded again into a sagittate apex (versus apex caudate) and entire lip middle lobe (versus fimbriate). The flowers of M. oliviae are pale brownish-purple, internally intensively suffused with yellow, dark-purple spotted. The new species grows among rocks at the elevation of 2700–3100 m a.s.l. A key to Peruvian Myoxanthus representatives is provided.
