Epidendrum porpax has somewhat larger plants with somewhat reclining stems, leaves x mm, flat, narrowly ovate-lanceolate, subacute, the green flowers with a lustrous, convex, reddish purple lip proportionately wider than long, the apex rounded, sepals 8. The new species is recognized by the purple leaves and stems, flowers small, sepals 10 mm long, sepals, petals and basal half of column wine-red to purple-brown, apical half of column and lip ivory white, immaculate, the lip with a single wide mid-rib.

Inflorescence cm long, apical, racemose, producing new racemes with time and thus pluri-racemose, each raceme compact, densely many- flowered; peduncle 40 cm long, elongate, terete, covered by bracts 4. Diamantina, m, 9 XIIE. Leaves numerous, distichous, distributed throughout the stem, alternate, articulate; sheaths tubular, minutely striated; blade narrowly elliptic-lanceolate to lanceolate-oblong, apex sub-obtuse, coriaceous.

The species has been propagated from seed by Ecuagenera. Pollinia 4, obovoid, laterally compressed, similar in size and shape, caudicles granulose, somewhat longer than the pollinia. Anther 4-lobed, transversely ovoid. The following species are all found in the same general area and have a very similar plant habit.

The Genus Epidendrum Part 8, Icon. Widespread along the Amazon slope of the Andes in Peru, at m altitude, in disturbed forest, epiphytic at m altitude. The new species is recognized by the pure white flowers, with the large callus white, flowers large, sepals 22 mm long, straight, petals 3-veined, 1.

English with extended Spanish descriptions This work illustrates and describe new orchiacearum of the genus Epidendrumwith 32 species new to science and other world species which are now botanically illustrated with their precise determination based on the most recent information available.


Stems cane-like, terete, erect, branching sub-apically in mature plants; primary stem x 1. Flowerssuccessive, open at one time, resupinate, orange-red, the lip orchidacearim, with a few red dots on the disc, calli and mid-rib yellow, column violet-red, the sides of the apex white, anther orange; without fragrance.

Roraima, ft, 7 IForest DepartmentK! Without data, Weidmann s. Pollinia 4, obovoid, yellow; caudicles soft and granulose, yellow, slightly longer than the pollinia; viscidium semi-liquid. Clinandrium-hood much reduced, margin entire. Ovary 6 mm long, terete, thick, striated, not inflated, same color as the sepals and rachis. At first sight, the plant appears to be a very delicate plant related to Epidendrum alpicoloscandens from the same Cerro Villonaco, at m altitude, but that species has fleshy leaves The species is widespread along the eastern slope the Andes in southern Colombia and Ecuador.


Icones Colombianae 1 – SPECIES ORCHIDACEARUM

This species qualifies in the category VU and meets the criteria B1a. Epidendrum lasiostachyum belongs to the Macrostachyum Group, which is characterized by the monopodial plants with sub-apical branching, rugose leaf sheaths, large leaves generally spreading, racemose, erect inflorescence, and fleshy flowers generally green to black ripe orchidaceatum coloredas well as yellow to pink to purple, with an entire, conduplicate, generally ecallose and pubescent ochidacearum embracing the column, and the nectary pubescent to papillose in front of the stigmatic cavity and at least at the base of the lip.

Similar to Epidendrum cylindraceum Lindl. Leavesdistributed along the upper half of the stem, alternate, articulate, erect-spreading; sheaths 2- 5 x 0. The species is recognized by the cane-like stems, orchidaxearum in succession from below the middle of the previous stem, inflorescence distichous, laxly few-flowered, with a laterally compressed, ancipitose, two-winged peduncle, subtended by a large spathe; flowers small, yellow-green to green tinged dirty purple; petals linear, lip orchodacearum, united the basal half of the column, widely separated above, ecallose, with 3 evident parallel ribs and an orchidacsarum thickening near the apex.


UGDA – flower in spirit. Dodson,Epidendrum dolichorhachis in E. Leavesaggregate towards the apex of the stem, sub-erect with respect to the stem, alternate, articulate, thin; sheaths 2 x 0. Floral bracts 2 mm long, much shorter than the ovary, linear-triangular, acuminate, embracing. Ovary mm long, spreading from the axis of the inflorescence, and turning down and back, like a fishing hook, so orchidacearu the flower is always facing downwards, unornamented. Lip x mm, united to the column, 3-lobed, fleshy, base truncate, embracing the column in natural position and covering it totally, disc pubescent, margin entire; with a single callus forming a fleshy platform, the apex bidentate; lateral lobes 5 orchidacewrum 5 mm, rounded, apex obtuse; mid-lobe 3 x 2 mm, conical, fleshy, solid, apex rounded-acute.

Column 3 mm long, slightly arched upwards towards the apex, base thin, gradually widened towards the apex. Browse titles from Herbario Amo. Petals x 2.

Nevertheless, an extrapolation from neighboring countries suggests we should expect at least double the number of species that have been registered so far. The species is recognized by the successive, lacquer-red flowers, the orange callus, sepals about 9 mm long, the petals somewhat smaller than the sepals, oblanceolate, the lip square in outline, deeply 3-lobed, the lateral lobes dolabriform, terminating in a pair of divaricate, narrow, triangular, acute, bifurcate teeth, the lateral lobes clearly separate and never overlapping with orchidaceatum mid-lobe when spread, and the mid-lobe rather acutely dentate to somewhat flabellate, bilobed and distinctively divaricate; callus concave orchidacearumm, 5-tuberculate, 2 globose processes, 2 outer, smaller flat growths, and an apical-V shaped protuberance like the bow of a ship, the apex acute.

Known from the western slope of the Andes in northern Ecuador and Colombia, without locality between m altitude. Floral bracts mm long, triangular to triangular-ovate, acuminate, embracing.

Ovary mm long, sub-triquetrous, thin, verrucose, not inflated.
