Abstract

Two different specimens were cited in the protologue of Campylocentrum tyrridion, but no type was designated. According to article 37.1 of the International Code of Botanical Nomenclature, the name therefore was not validly published. Foldats, in his treatment of Orchidaceae for the Flora of Venezuela, revalidated the name by selecting as type one of the specimens cited in the original protologue. The species is illustrated and its nomenclature and geographical distribution is summarized. In addition, a key is provided to distinguish it from Campylocentrum fasciola, its closest related species. En el protólogo de Campylocentrum tyrridion se citaron dos ejemplares, pero no se designó un tipo. De acuerdo al artículo 37.1 del Código Internacional de Nomenclatura Botánica, el nombre no fue válidamente publicado. Foldats, en su tratamiento de Orchidaceae para la Flora de Venezuela, revalidó el nombre al seleccionar como tipo uno de los ejemplares citados en el protólogo original. Se ilustra la especie y su resume su nomenclatura y su distribución geográfica. Además, se presenta una clave para distinguirla de su especie afin, C. fasciola.
