Abstract

Ornithocephalus torresii Salazar & Soto Arenas, a new species from the Pacific slope of Oaxaca, Mexico, is described and illustrated. It is distinguished by the nearly closed, globose flowers and the cymbiform lip with a small, irregularly dentate-lacerate lobule at each side of the base. A key to all the species of Ornithocephalus hiterto recorded from Mexico is provided.
