Abstract:
A reinstatement, three new combinations, and one new species are proposed for orchids that occur in India and Sri Lanka. The name that is reinstated is Dendrobium crispum, with D. peguanum treated as a synonym; the new combinations are Cylindrolobus lindleyi, Peristylus caranjensis, and Trichotosia thwaitesii; and Dendrobium turbinatum is proposed as a new species.
