Myoxanthus oliviae sp. nov. (Pleurothallidinae, Orchidaceae) from Peru
Marta Kolanowska , Dariusz Lucjan Szlachetko
AbstractA 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.
