Abstract

Continuing studies of neotropical Goodyerinae has revealed that 11 transfers are required in the genera Aspidogyne (9) and Microchilus (2). Furthermore the descriptions of 31 new taxa are required in the genera Aspidogyne (3), Ligeophila (1), Microchilus (21 species, 2 subspecies, 2 varieties) and Platythelys (2). Extensions of distributional records are reported for 8 species. Ethnobotanical uses are recorded for 3 Ecuadorian species. Erythrodes cornejoi, E. serripetala and Ligeophila chinimensis are formally reduced to synonymy of Platythelys venustula, Aspidogyne bidentifera and Ligeophila juruenensis respectively. Illustrations are provided of 35 of the 54 taxa treated.
