- A new species of Telipogon, T. schneideri, is described and illustrated based on Colombian material. The newly described taxon is distinguished from T. falcatus by the lanceolate, non-falcate petals, which are conspicuously longer than the sepals, and by the lip that is densely covered by hispid hairs up to the margins. Information about habitat, ecology, and distribution of this new entity, as well as a brief discussion on closely related species are supplied.
