Perez-Escobar, Oscar Alejandro; Katherine Rodriguez, Lizeth; Martel, Carlos (2017): A New Species of Telipogon (Oncidiinae;Orchidaceae) from the Paramos of Colombia. In: Phytotaxa, Vol. 305, No. 4: pp. 262-268
Full text not available from 'Open Access LMU'.


Telipogon heinrichsii from the paramo of the western slope of the Central Andean Cordillera in Colombia is proposed as a new species. The new taxon is similar to T. puruantensis and T. vollesii, but differs by the triquetrous peduncle of the inflorescence, a widely ovate labellum, and the column completely surrounded by uniformly distributed setae. A description, illustrations, and notes on the ecology and distribution are provided.
